Case Study: 5500 Reporting

Enterprise Iron Financial Industry Solutions, Inc.


A major provider of 403(b) and 401(k) services adopted the OMNI Recordkeeping system.

They then converted plans from a contract-based to a plan-based accounting methodology.

The transactions had to be pulled and mapped across their legacy platform and the new OMNI platform to produce an annual 5500 Report for each plan.


Our Team translated the old systems’ transaction codes to OMNI transaction codes and mapped both into the ERISA reporting system.

We reconciled their financial data (beginning market value, contributions, income, transfers, distributions, ending market value and other items) from OMNI transactions and compared them to the existing reporting systems’ transactions.

Next, we produced supporting reports for 5500 purposes and mapped ERISA reporting codes to produce line by line items on different schedules for 5500 (Schedule H, IA and D).


By partnering with Enterprise Iron, our Client achieved their aggressive deadline goal.

ERISA reportable plans were completed, which allowed their customers and auditors ample time to review the reports prior to the DOL deadline of July 31st.

The Client received positive feedback from employers and their participants regarding the improved customer experience from having accurate reports available ahead of time on the web to review.

Ultimately, our Client could now handle serious regulatory challenges such as the upcoming changes on 403(b).
