About FICA Alternative

The FICA Alternative Plan was created to help government agencies save the cost of matching FICA (Social Security) tax on part-time, seasonal, and temporary employees who do not qualify for a state or government pension.

This comprehensive program features no conflict-of-interest, low fees (with no surrender charges or vendor penalties), competitive investments, turn-key administration, guaranteed compliance with applicable state laws, and fiduciary protection.


Save Money

This plan can help reduce or completely eliminate mandatory employer contributions to the Social Security system.


Better Retirement

Employees are able to keep the money they contribute to their retirement plan, regardless of meeting typical government requirements.


Rollover Friendly

If employees become full time status, they can roll their FICA plan into a qualifying voluntary retirement plan.
