When Montgomery Retirement Plan Advisors (MRPA) was founded in 2004, we sought to build a firm that would focus on just one thing and do it very well -- building highly effective retirement plans. From the start we saw the importance of offering truly independent advice, no-nonsense fee transparency, and standing behind our advice by accepting the role of ERISA investment fiduciary. Since 2004 we have built our consulting practice upon a foundation of expertise, straight talk, and sincere interest in our clients. That singular focus paid off as our firm has grown and we are proud to have received consistent national awards and recognition for our thought leadership in the retirement plan field. In 2020 MRPA announced that it was teaming up with OneDigital a leading employee benefits and human resources consulting firm focused on driving business growth for employers of all sizes. MRPA is a part of the next chapter in OneDigital's legacy—expansion into corporate retirement plan consulting and wealth management.
