Composite Employee Benefit Trust

Hand Benefits & Trust established the Hand Composite Employee Benefit Trust on May 1, 1964.   This provided a trust in which the assets of employee benefit plans—qualified under Section 401(a) of the Internal Revenue Code —can be commingled,  pursuant to the Composite Trust for purposes of broad investment diversification.

These funds are maintained for the exclusive benefit of the tax-qualified retirement plans that have engaged Hand Benefits & Trust as a fiduciary or as an agent for a fiduciary.
