The ACEC Retirement Trust oversees a program that provides retirement plans for participating ACEC member firms. Firms in any national category of membership are eligible for this program. Seven Trustees, made up of senior members of participating firms, oversee the Retirement Trust. The Trustees have selected nationally known consulting firms in the areas of ERISA compliance, investment selection and monitoring, participant education, and recordkeeping to assist them in the operation of their program. For program members, the Trustees assume a significant portion of the required fiduciary protection of each member’s plan, thus allowing firm personnel to spend more time on their engineering expertise and less on the retirement readiness of their employees.

Trust participant education is provided through webinars, newsletters and flyers and is available to participants 24/7 through websites and major social media channels. Call centers are provided where Plan Sponsors and participants can talk to live experts to assist with their questions and needs. Local representatives are assigned to each plan to assist with face-to-face questions and on-site education where desired.
