Retirement Savings Plan administration

​When you offer the Retirement Savings Plan to your employees, your time spent administering the plan is minimal.

The Retirement Savings Plan of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) is a turnkey plan for employers. The Board of Pensions assumes the fiduciary responsibility for and handles most of the administration for you; Fidelity Investments provides record keeping and reporting. When you offer the plan to your employees, your time spent administering it is minimal.

Investment management and oversight

The Board of Pensions' in-house Investments team, in partnership with Fidelity Investments, provides investment management and oversight for the Retirement Savings Plan's investment performance, fund selection, and fee and service negotiations. This highly experienced team oversees more than $9 billion of investments that support benefits plans and programs, including a defined benefit pension plan.

The Investments team selects funds with competitive fees and proven performance records. The Investment Committee of the Board of Directors of the Board of Pensions reviews the administrative fees and services, funds, and fund expense ratios, resulting in a low-cost overall participant experience.
