Michael “Mike” Riley may be familiar to some of our longtime business clients as he was a part of our team from 2009 to 2011. Prior to rejoining Prosperity, Mike was a regional relationship manager and senior retirement plan consultant at a national third-party administrator. Fifteen years of experience working with qualified retirement plans enables Mike to assess plan inefficiencies and opportunities thoroughly.
As a Qualified 401(k) Administrator (QKA®), certified by the American Society of Pension Professionals and Actuaries, Mike is skilled in recordkeeping, nondiscrimination testing, and qualified defined contribution retirement plan design. He supports business clients through the initial set-up, maintenance, and ongoing support of their retirement plans. Mike coordinates employee enrollment meetings and retirement plan reviews and ensures plan sponsors maintain compliance by understanding plan provisions, satisfying annual notice requirements, and adhering to industry best practices and regulatory developments.
The core of Mike’s practice lies in his passion for:
- Advising on defined contribution and defined benefit/cash balance combination plans
- Monitoring compliance reporting to ensure plan sponsors satisfy legal requirements
- Encouraging retirement plan participation through education and proactive communication
- Guiding retirement plan participants through plan provisions and the distribution process
- Researching complex compliance topics such as control group issues, plan design intricacies, voluntary correction methods, and cross-testing
In his spare time, Mike enjoys illustrating cartoons. Mike has written and illustrated over a dozen books, has had work appear in various newspapers, collaborates with artists around the country, and he co-founded an award-winning multi-use art space. Mike also enjoys spending time with his artist wife, Heather, and their dogs Treetrunks and Weird Bubba.
