INTAC Joins Ascensus TPA Solutions Division

Ascensus has entered into an agreement to acquire INTAC Actuarial Services, Inc. (INTAC). The third-party administration (TPA) firm will immediately become part of Ascensus’ TPA Solutions division.

Based in Ridgewood, New Jersey, INTAC provides administration of employer-sponsored retirement plans for about 3,000 small to mid-sized companies, their owners, key executives and employees. INTAC also provides ongoing education to their clients and the professionals in the communities they service to ensure that they remain abreast of industry changes and issues.

“Geographically speaking, the tri-state and greater Delaware areas are important market expansion opportunities for our TPA Solutions division,” says Raghav Nandagopal, Ascensus’ executive vice president of corporate development and M&A. “With its strong historical growth, successful long-term track record, and associate-focused culture, INTAC is an ideal business to help Ascensus achieve its immediate and long-term growth plans.”
