Companies small and large can tap into the power of multiple employer plan with the Utah Manufacturers Association (UMA) 401(k) plan, offered exclusively by Altura Financial Advisors. Get the flexibility to create a plan tailored just for you –  with options and service normally only available to the largest 401(k) pans.

Health Plans

UMA Health Plan Utah Manufacturing Companies with 2 to 100 employees can participate in the plan, which includes large group plan designs and premium benefits.

The Utah Manufacturers Association Benefits Plan provides employers with 2 to 200 employees, an opportunity to be a part of a large group pool of manufacturing companies and avoid the Affordable Care Act rating process.

The manufacturers who have joined the Association Benefits Plan, in many casses, have been able to offer employees the same or  a better plan at a reduced price.  Not all groups qualify or see the exact same benefits, but the results have been tremendous for many groups.

Many types of coverage are available through the UMA Benefits Plan.
