JOINT AND SURVIVOR
TIC is a Third Party Administrator (TPA) of pension plans - defined benefit, defined contribution
and 401(k). We run the daily operation of each of these programs for our clients.
Administration of qualified pension plans requires expertise to keep abreast of ever-changing
government rules, regulations, and judicial interpretations that flow from dozens of federal laws.
We have in place technologically advanced computer systems to handle the huge volume of plan and
participant data, much of which must be kept for 50 years or more. Our computer programs also deal with the
complex provisions of each of our clients' specially designed pension eligibility and benefit formula.
