The HBA of Berks County is committed to providing the right solutions for your businesses — solutions that bring you economy of scale, and help you show your employees that you value what matters to them.
That’s why we’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Lincoln Financial Group to deliver the new HBA of Berks County 401(k) program.
Here’s what you’ll experience with the new HBA 401(k) program:
- Access to potential pricing and service efficiencies — economies of scale
- Less administrative work, as you hand off many of the responsibilities that come with running a 401(k), including filing Form 5500 and employee loans
- Relief from many fiduciary obligations, while maintaining your current plan design — or changing to a plan design that works for you
Because partnering with Lincoln delivers benefits that go beyond the retirement plan itself.
- Personalized service — Members who join the plan receive ongoing, dedicated attention, and Lincoln will work closely with HBA to recruit new businesses into the plan.
- Demonstrated value — Surveyed Lincoln plan sponsors rated their overall satisfaction at 90% in 2019,* and their award-winning websites help make your experience even easier.
- Deep experience — Lincoln has been in business since 1905, is a recognized leader in the retirement plan space and has group 401(k) program experience dating back to 1995.

The PBA Workers’ Compensation Program is an alternative market program established by the Pennsylvania Builders Association in 1999 to help members leverage their group buying power to save on workers’ compensation costs. The program is only available to association members and since inception has grown to nearly 600 accounts with almost $9 million in premium volume.
PBA Workers’ Compensation Program participants don’t:
- Experience large surprise audits
- Pay the same high work comp premium when business is slow
- Burden operating cash flow with a large down payment of premium
PBA helps businesses compete with the parallel pay® program offered, allowing members to pay insurance premiums as they go, automatically through payroll service or manually as they pay employees.
Contact Ryan Dixon, PBA Coordinator for more information on this cost saving program:
