For Congregational Employers
Are you a congregational representative looking for support or information about how to make retirement contributions for your employee?
Fidelity Investments' Plan Sponsor Webstation (PSW) online platform enables employers to make contributions electronically for the benefit of cantors, rabbis and GTM members who participate in the ACC Retirement Plan. Transmission is easy. To get started, complete the Fidelity PSW User Access Form below and return it to the ACC Office via fax or email.
Each user of Fidelity's PSW system is required to have their own unique login ID and credentials. If an employee leaves your employ, simply notify the ACC Office by submitting a new Fidelity PSW User Access Form with a brief note regarding the change in personnel.
Electronic Contributions Required in 2017
All participating employers are to make contributions electronically for Temple Contributions and Salary Deferrals using Fidelity's PSW system beginning in 2017. If your temple is new to PSW, you will be able to fund contributions faster and more securely than with traditional paper checks. The ACC Office will no longer be able to process contribution checks after December 31, 2016. Any contribution checks received after this date will be returned to the employer.
Hundreds of Executive Directors, finance personnel and temple Treasurers have been using Fidelity's PSW system to process employee contributions for the past several years. Please join them and return your User Access Form today. Contact Dana Stahl in the ACC Office with any questions.
