  • We have used FreeERISA, Judy Diamond and many others, but nothing compares to the user-friendly miEdge system. Their 5500 information is very accurate and updated regularly. We've found this gives us a distinct advantage when meeting with a prospect to discuss fees and whether they are in compliance. If you're considering purchasing a prospecting database, I would highly recommend you contact the miEdge team for an overview.
