ACCE Benefits Trust

ACCE Benefit TrustThe ACCE Benefits Trust was established to oversee all of the ACCE benefit plans on behalf of the participants. The trustees are a group of eight to 10 ACCE member CEOs who are plan participants themselves. They hire leading experts and benefit attorneys to:

  • Advise on investment options and custodians for ACCE retirement plans
  • Counsel on legal issues for benefit plan compliance
  • Negotiate with insurance carriers

The trustees meet a minimum of four times per year to review plan implementation, updates on changes, and ideas for new participant offerings. The Trust takes on some of the fiduciary responsibility for ACCE retirement plans and represents the "group" in negotiating group insurance rates. Their loyalty is to every ACCE member employee participating in the many ACCE benefit plans.
