Fort Worth chooses Arrivos pension administration system for Employees’ Retirement Fund

Tegrit Technologies is pleased to announce that it has been chosen to implement its Arrivos pension administration system for the City of Fort Worth (TX) Employees' Retirement Fund (FWERF).

Based in Livonia, MI, Tegrit Technologies will help FWERF manage and maintain its retirement program for over 9,000 members. Tegrit Technologies is a division of Tegrit Financial Group, a New York firm that develops management and financial solutions for the public sector.

"We reviewed several systems and found that Arrivos was the best choice to meet our needs for improved access to and proper control of our participant data," said Wanda Valentine, deputy director of FWERF. "With this software, we will streamline our daily processes allowing us to provide enhanced services to our members."

FWERF was established in 1945 with 1,209 members as a municipal retirement program dedicated to providing promised retirement benefits and exceptional services while sustaining members' trust. FWERF has over $1 billion under management.

For FWERF, Tegrit Technologies will provide its Pension Administration System, with several client-specific data tools. In addition, the system will include a member self-service portal, allowing registered members secure access to their information. Each module is easily customized to fit FWERF specific requirements.

"We look forward to helping FWERF provide enhanced service to its members," said Stephen D. Garrow, chief executive officer of Tegrit Financial Group. "It's a great opportunity to work with such an exceptional retirement system."
