Are you a congregational representative looking for support or information about how to make retirement contributions for your cantor?

Fidelity Investments' Plan Sponsor Webstation (PSW) online platform enables employers to make contributions electronically for the benefit of participants in the ACC Retirement Plan. Transmission is easy. To get started, complete the Fidelity PSW User Access form and an ACC Participating Employer Adoption Agreement form 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 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.
