Welcome to First Capital Benefit Advisors, Inc.

Retirement plans for small business, serving clients since 1980

Which type of plan is right for you? We provide ongoing administrative and actuarial services for several types of qualified retirement plans.


How much of your earnings can you defer? Defined benefit plans provide significant tax deferral opportunities over defined contribution plans alone.


What might your retirement account look like? We work with you to provide a customized set-up for your unique business and retirement needs.



Our goal is to customize DB and 401(k) plans for clients of our financial advisor and accountant colleagues, as well as to take good care of the clients who reach out to us directly.

We have many, many satisfied clients, satisfied financial advisors, and satisfied accountants. We help you fly on this program called life to change your high-income status to include high-net-worth status. With our careful and cautious guidance, you will reach financial heights you have never known before. Many of our clients contribute heavily when their income is high, and reduce or eliminate contributions when things get tight. In tough times, we can even help you access your retirement assets for either a loan or a distribution. Wherever life leads you, we will follow to care for your retirement plan.

You control all of your own investments, and we do most of the administration. You can even purchase income-producing real estate in your retirement plan.
