About The ERISA Advisory Group

In 1995, William Kropkof started the ERISA Advisory Group to help business owners and employer organizations build Employee Benefit & Qualified Retirement Plans that are goal-oriented and ERISA compliant.

Before he began his career as an Independent Fiduciary, William worked as an Investigator for the US Department of Labor for 7 years out of their Los Angeles office. 

Back then, the agency responsible for enforcement of Title I of the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA) was called the Pension and Welfare Benefits Administration. Now, you might be more familiar with its new name, the Employee Benefits Security Administration (EBSA).

William was assigned to investigate private employers that offered Health & Welfare Plans and Qualified Retirement Plans to their employees who were suspected of being out of compliance with ERISA.

After auditing dozens of organizations, issuing hundreds of thousands of dollars in civil penalties, and recommending fiduciaries for criminal charges – he decided it was time to enter the private sector and help businesses stay ERISA compliant rather than get them in trouble.

Now, the ERISA Advisory Group helps organizations in a variety of industries, including PEOs, Trade AssociationsTaft-Hartley Unions and Single Employers build strategic plans that are compliant with the law.

Armed with decades of experience, and the knowledge of what goes on behind the scenes at the DOL, our group is equipped to build any type of Health Benefit or Retirement Plan while protecting its fiduciaries.
