The Money Purchase Component of the Statewide Hybrid Plan and DROP accounts are considered “self-directed plans”. This means the members direct the investement of these assets using the mutual funds offered by the plan. This is sometimes referred to as the standard plan options. While Fidelity is the recordkeeper for the self-directed plans, the funds offered are not limited to Fidelity funds. In addition to the standard plan options, a brokerage window, BrokerageLink, is available.
Offering a cost-effective and competitive plan to FPPA members who participate in the self-directed plans is very important to FPPA. The funds are continually monitored and evaluated by the FPPA Self-Directed Plans Committee. This committee also determines the fees based on the cost to administer the plan.
