Los Angeles - Transamerica Retirement Services, a provider of Multiple Employer Plans (MEPs), has implemented online adoption and acceptance agreement capabilities. The new feature, called "AAA on the Web," is designed to simplify and streamline the process of adding new companies into an MEP by enabling both primary sponsors and adopting companies to review and accept the adoption agreement documents online.Prior to this implementation, the MEP and adopting company had to manually review the adoption and acceptance agreement. Now, the entire acceptance process can be completed online. Additionally, before this online feature was made available, the process of adopting employers into an existing MEP required the same amount of time and resources as a traditional single-employer plan set-up. This new online program can save companies time by limiting the provision approval process to only those that are unique to the adopting company, while the standard MEP provisions are automatically implemented.

"Until now, the process of adding companies to MEPs has been quite labor intensive," says Kelly Michel, vice president of special markets for Transamerica Retirement Services. "This online self-service process of reviewing and authorizing the adoption and acceptance agreement online will drastically reduce the overall time and effort required to adopt new client companies into existing MEP plans."
