About Us

Check 401k.com is a free, non-profit website sponsored by the Pension Trade Association, a California non-profit corporation dedicated to helping U.S. workers save for their retirement through the expanded coverage and use of 401k-type defined contribution pension plans.
The Pension Trade Association (PTA), California Domestic Nonprofit Corporation #C1629080, was founded in 1982, and maintains a sponsored website at www.pension-trade-association.org. In addition, the Association sponsors two additional non-profit, websites; an active Wordpress blog at www.401k-plan-blog.com and this website….a free service for 401k plan participants to monitor their company’s management of their 401k plan.

One obvious threat to the safety of 401k plan participants' retirement savings, and the creditability of small 401k plans, comes directly from employers who do not run their 401k plans properly or in accordance with federal laws.

Check401k.com is a public non-profit "bulletin board listing" of employers who, in the subjective opinion of Check401k.com, could possibly be mismanaging an aspect of their 401k plans. The information conveyed in this website is provided to the public at no cost, and derived from sources believed to be reliable and creditable, but it is subjective opinion, and no effort is made to verify the accuracy of the information herein provided. Use of this information is solely at your discretion, and is governed by the Disclaimer, Terms of Use, and Privacy Policy listed below.

This small business displays all the attributes of a classical “deadbeat”. Specifically, despite multiple attempts by phone, email and regular mail to collect on a past due invoice for services rendered, they ignore the invoices, and refuse to pay what they owe.
