A Defined Contribution LOSAP now available for volunteer firefighters

volunteer firefighter in front of truck(February 12, 2014) A Defined Contribution Length of Service Award Program (LOSAP) for volunteer firefighters is now available.

Under this program, the fire department or sponsor can contribute either a set amount on behalf of each firefighter or a lump sum to be allocated among all active firefighters. Administrative fees can either be deducted from a member’s account or paid separately by the sponsor.

For the plan to be viable, the sponsor should consider a contribution of at least $300 per year per firefighter. Funds will be deposited into a Group Annuity Contract underwritten by Mass Mutual. The contract will provide:

  • Guarantee of Principal.
  • Minimum 3 percent interest guarantee.
  • Benefit distributions at book value.
  • Higher than guaranteed rates if earned.

We look forward to providing this valuable program!
