National Benefit Services is an independent Third Party Administrator (TPA). We partner with major mutual fund platform providers and local investment professionals to build a “professionally bundled” service team. This approach provides the best program available for our Plan Sponsors – the accessibility and responsiveness of local investment management and administration, combined with state-of-the-art record keeping and fund offerings. Our Plan Sponsors and their employees enjoy the benefits of a first-class retirement plan delivered by people who live and work in the same communities as the clients they serve.
As an independent TPA, our success depends largely upon our relationships with local area Advisors.
