Special DC Product Features
|Special DC Product Features
|Payroll provider integration
||180- and 360-degree integration with a growing list of payroll providers which allows clients to work with “best in class” providers rather than merely bundling DC administration with a payroll company for the sake of convenience.
|Integration with financial planning sites
||The BPAS website integrates with Mint.com, eMoney Advisor, and other financial planning sites that use screen-scraping technology. When participants enable these apps, their daily balances and activities are integrated to a single financial planning experience.

||For plans that want to go beyond guidance and education, BPAS offers various third-party advice programs. Contact us for more information.
