As the DOL's fee disclosure regulations take effect early this year, it's becoming increasingly important that 401(k) managers understand where their fees rank and if they're reasonable.
With this in mind, the 12th edition of the 401k Averages Book released the average total plan costs for a small retirement plan (100 participants), which, in 2011, for all expenses bundled together was 1.3 percent of assets under management. For a large retirement plan (1,000 participants), the number was slightly lower at 1.08 percent.
