Benetrends was founded in 1983 by Leonard Fischer, one of the leading ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act) attorneys in the nation. As a true pioneer in the lending industry, Benetrends blazed a trail for 401(k)/IRA retirement funding with its innovative Rainmaker Plan® and other funding vehicles. Today, 10% of all franchises granted are financed utilizing 401(k) funding. Benetrends still leads the industry with a dedicated team of experts in almost every facet of retirement plan design and administration.
One thing that hasn't changed is Benetrends’ passionate obligation to ensure the continued viability of retirement funding in America. In an effort to do just that, Benetrends meets periodically in Washington, D.C. with the IRS and the Department of Treasury, as well as key legislators and their staffs.
These discussions accomplish two things: 1) The ability to reinforce beliefs, and 2) Provide access to the most updated information about the funding position of both Treasury and our legislators. Benetrends’ dedication to maintaining current knowledge of retirement plan financing in America is a differentiating point from the competition.
