You Have Questions, We Have Answers

ABG MI was founded in 1969 and today is a full-service retirement plan consulting and administration firm headquartered in Bingham Farms, MI. The firm specializes in designing and servicing 401(k) and other types of qualified and non-qualified retirement plans. Alliance Benefit Group of Michigan is a regional service office of one of the largest retirement plan administration organizations in the country, Alliance Benefit Group, LLC (ABG) . ABG is a national network of independently owned retirement plan consulting, investment advisory, health and welfare consulting, and benefits administration firms. Our combined resources and business metrics bring a “strength in numbers” position to the negotiating table with product providers which allow us to improve our firms' competitive position thereby enhancing our ability to better serve our clients.

In addition, our structure allows each organization to maintain their independence and geographical autonomy yet at the same time providing each firm access to a variety of competitive products, technical support, and service collaboration from the other offices.

Collectively, ABG is one of the largest defined contribution retirement plan administrators in the country; providing administration services to over 13,000 plans representing over 1 million participants and over $51 billion in assets.

Our purpose is singular – all we do is retirement plan consulting, administration and recordkeeping.

In 1996, our firm partnered with Charles Schwab Trust Company to offer plan sponsors an “open architecture” investment platform. For over 15 years, our firm has been providing “open architecture” services to plan sponsors of defined contribution plans. These services include daily valuation recordkeeping, with 24x7 access to account balance information and transaction activity via our website and automated voice system.

As a member of a large national organization, ABG MI benefits from the technical support and service collaboration of the national group, while at the same time providing local, high touch services to plan sponsors and their plan participants.

We use various tools to optimize our interactions:

  • Employee/Employer Plan Website

We provide a full range of employee benefit plan consulting and administration, concentrating on the qualified plan market. As third party administrators, we believe that there are functional gaps that must be bridged to assist employers in providing meaningful benefits without increasing the level of frustration. For this reason ABG National offers a variety of services including Payroll with an interfaced HR service module. We also administer Defined Benefit, Section 125 plans, and non-qualified retirement plans.

Our philosophy is to provide a very high level of services at a reasonable cost.

Our recordkeeping platform allows for daily access of participants’ accounts including the ability to make transactions online or via automated telephone system.
