Electronic Contributions Required as of 2017
All participating employers are to make contributions electronically for Temple Contributions and Salary Deferrals using Fidelity's PSW system as of January, 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 no longer accepts contribution checks. Any contribution checks received after this date will be voided and 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 PSW User Access Form today. Contact ACC Retirement Plan Admin in the ACC Office with any questions regarding initial PSW setup.
Fidelity Investments' Plan Administration team is available to assist you in the use of the Fidelity PSW system, every step of the way. Once your login has been established, please contact Fidelity with any training, support, or technical issues. Unlimited training and support is available to employers at no charge; Fidelity's exceptional services are included as a benefit of our Plan.
