Time-saving 401(k) integrations now include Vestwell

The Vestwell Integration allows customers using Vestwell 401(k) plans to manage and synchronize their deductions effortlessly. By fully integrating the Vestwell platform with Gusto, we have removed the manual effort traditionally associated with managing a 401(k). 

Vestwell comes as the fourth-deep 401(k) integration, joining Guideline, Human Interest, and Betterment. These full platform integrations take the effort out of managing a 401(k). With automatically synchronized data, including new employee set up and contribution rate settings, we save customers time and eliminate manual errors, improving compliance. With these improvements, you’ll see:

  • Time-Saving: Automated synchronization eliminates the need for manual updates.
  • Error Reduction: Automation significantly reduces the risk of manual errors for employee deductions and contributions.
  • Seamless Management: The necessary deductions are made from employees’ paychecks,  and in most cases, fund transfers to your 401(k) provider with no extra work for you.

“The benefits process has been super simple. From 401(k) through Guideline to health, dental and vision, integrating benefits for our team has been a breeze because we went directly with the options provided by Gusto. They removed the guesswork.”

Sam Eitsen, Co-Founder & CEO, Snapbar

Get peace of mind with new Guardian insurance automations 

Renewing health benefit elections and adding new coverage with Guardian is now faster and more streamlined. Gusto brokers and administers the benefits on your behalf, sending them to Guardian to automatically process. This automation saves you time and increases compliance—no longer do you have to contact Guardian directly or manage the paperwork. Here’s what you can expect from this new feature:

  • Peace of mind: Whether you need to renew or add a new line of coverage for life, dental, disability or beyond, these new automations save you time and finish processing more quickly.
  • Reduced Workload: Businesses no longer need to contact Guardian directly or manage extensive paperwork, allowing HR teams to focus on more strategic tasks.
  • Improved Accuracy: Automated processes ensure that renewals and new coverage additions are accurately processed, minimizing errors.
