What We Do | Retirement Fund Administration Services

In a dynamic financial environment, it is vital for people to understand the importance of accumulating enough money for retirement. At SA Quantum we are here to assist any and all responsible employers, working together with their employees to secure a bright financial future. Retirement fund members are progressively becoming responsible for planning their own retirement. As a result, they need suitable solutions and steady encouragement to evaluate their retirement benefits and other investments.

Retirement fund administration goes beyond reconciling monthly contributions and paying out benefits. For us, it is about making a difference in the lives of our clients, treating their retirement savings with deserved respect while efficiently managing all processes within the administration space. Our administration model provides for flexibility and stability within our database. Our team takes care of every aspect of fund administration from member communication to death benefit distribution.
