Upgrade Your 401(k) Plan with BlueStar’s Comprehensive Multiple Employer Plan Solution

BlueStar’s proprietary technologies were designed with MEPs in mind. Our service-first model delivers an unrivaled experience for your PEO and clients. Our new Pooled Employer Plan solutions also allow your ASO clients to participate in industry-leading retirement plans. And our Prism integration will increase data accuracy, reduce your daily to-do list, and enhance your client experience.

Stronger Together: Your PEO 401K MEP

Multiple employer plans (MEPs) are a special type of 401(k) plan that allows businesses to pool their purchasing power together to access better benefits, services, and rates with less in-house administrative overhead. In other words, they fit right into your PEO service model!

Since you control the payroll functions of your clients, you are able to offer a MEP that is less expensive and easier to administer than other 401(k) options. An excellent 401(k) MEP will help you attract and retain great clients.

If you are interested in offering a 401(k) solution to your ASO clients, we can help there too! Ask us about our PEP options!

Specializing in Multiple Employer Plans for PEOs

Napeo 20 years logo

BlueStar has worked with PEOs since 2003 and understands their unique needs.

We know that your retirement plan needs to be a shining example of why your client hired you to take over their HR and Payroll needs. Our service model is designed to support you completely from the initial sale through the many years of successful client development.

As a NAPEO Medallion Partner, we’re constant supporters of the PEO community, enabling us to keep our finger on the pulse of your world.

The BlueStar integration with the PrismHR platform delivers significant advantages to PEOs

Automated Processing

Our API eliminates the daily chore of 401(k) maintenance.  We will automatically pull payroll and census data from Prism and return participant level changes like new enrollments, contribution rate changes, and loan information.

Data Quality Assurance

By accessing your data directly, we can ensure that our data and your data are always in sync.  That means fewer problems, better compliance, and happier clients.

Employee Experience

With our single sign on process, your worksite employees can access their 401k data directly from their Prism portal.  With our branding capabilities, this technology creates a seamless and consistent employee experience.

Technology Built for MEPS

Smart Retirement Planning Tools for a Brighter Future

We have been dedicated to pushing boundaries and developing tools you need to be successful for almost 20 years. BlueStar provides retirement tools at every stage, for PEOs, worksite employers, and individual plan participants. Plan Sponsors can effortlessly monitor and manage each adopting employer across the entire plan, or aggregate data for plan-level metrics and reporting. Adopting employers benefit from a standalone plan experience, with reporting and access exclusive to their company. Participants can confidently take control of their future with the MyPlanConnection app, and more! We are here to serve you by offering industry-leading MEP technologies and services.

Comprehensive Recordkeeping

Over the past two decades, BlueStar has built and perfected our proprietary systems to take on the unique reporting, administration, and recordkeeping challenges posed by MEPs. No workarounds or manual processes like you’ll see with other providers. And as an experienced PEO partner, we’ve done the work to integrate with popular PEO software.

Sophisticated Reporting Tools

On the BlueStar platform, our PEO partners access portals that seamlessly shift between a total plan view and a specific adopter view. Reporting is available for the plan level as well as by adopter, so each company retains an individual plan experience–all while receiving the benefits of being part of your MEP.


Engage plan participants like never before with BlueStar’s one-of-a-kind EngagementEngine. Designed to help you go the extra mile when communicating with participants using data-driven and fully customizable campaigns

We Help You Stand Apart From the Crowd

A high-quality plan should look like a high-quality plan, and BlueStar is with you every step of the way to deliver that experience. Your 401(k) plan needs to feel unique and reflect your brand. After all, they’re your clients and your plan.

With the help of that great BlueStar technology, we can customize your plan portal, brochures, and participant materials with your logo and colors. You can even have branding options at a company by company level that differs from your PEO branding. And because our system is so flexible, there’s zero extra charge.

Open Architecture with Charles Schwab

Charles Schwab Trust Bank custodies your plan assets and processes all trading instructions.

Using an open-architecture custodian gives your plan access to the gamut of investment vehicles, including low-cost options, to help participants achieve their retirement goals. And because BlueStar and Schwab are no-conflicts providers, you can rest assured your plan won’t be plagued with proprietary investments or hidden fund kickbacks.

The bottom line is it comes down to possibilities. Our mission at BlueStar has always been to offer a true open architecture platform that enables access to the broadest possible universe of investment options – so that your potential is never limited.

Trust the Professionals / CEFEX

BlueStar undergoes two separate independent audits per year to document and refine BlueStar’s internal procedures.

A SSAE16 SOC 1 Type 2 audit is performed by a retirement plan industry specialist to confirm that our procedures are sound and are accurately implemented. BlueStar is audited by a second industry specialist in support of the ASPPA-CEFEX Service Provider Certification, the gold standard for retirement plan service provider industry certifications.

All of BlueStar’s compliance professionals carry designations from ASPPA, the premier national organization for retirement plan professionals.
