NAEC offers new retirement plan member opportunity

Our mission at the Association is to do everything we can to help members succeed by providing valuable services and programming. To that end, we're excited to announce a powerful new retirement planning solution that is now available exclusively for members of the National Association of Elevator Contractors.

We've partnered with Lincoln Financial, a nationally recognized leader in retirement planning services to develop this unique program that leverages the strengths of group participation to provide a costeffective and easy way for you to implement a turnkey 401(K) employee program. Our Multiple Employer Aggregation Program is a retirement plan solution that lets you offer your employees a competitive 401(K) benefit that can help reduce your fiduciary and administrative responsibilities in the process.
