Associated Third Party Administrators (ATPA) was formed nearly fifteen years ago through a consolidation of two long established
third party administrators that were founded about the same time having over forty years of experience and leadership in employee
benefits administration. We continue to operate from our pioneering base in computerized application technology for the
administration of Taft-Hartley multi-employer trust funds. We specialize in collective bargaining agreement administration, and
are an industry leader in optimizing best business practices, cost containment and operational efficiency.
Today, we are the second largest and best independent, Taft-Hartley Third Party Administrator in the country. ATPA was purchased
by United Benefits and Pension Services, Inc. in December 2007.
Our staff of four hundred employees is carefully trained and highly
motivated, operating from various locations throughout the United States. We service a large number of Labor/Management
Trust Funds and Public Employee/Employer Benefit Plans providing a wide array of administrative services. Our data
processing and record-keeping systems exceed industry standards and are customized to meet each client's specific
needs. We conduct our clients' business with hundreds of national and local Attorneys, Consultants, CPA's, Actuaries,
managed care specialists and other specialized employee benefit providers. Our Administrators have extensive experience
working with the International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plans and the Society of Professional Benefit Administrators
as directors, committee members, speakers and authors.
ATPA's data processing and information management systems utilize large-scale mainframes, file servers, wide and local
area networks and stand-alone desktop applications. We successfully interface with and support plan service providers'
unique data processing requirements and all of our offices and systems are connected via the latest technology available.
As the industry leader in technology utilization, we strive to employ solutions that best serve
our client's needs.
Most importantly, we at ATPA thoroughly understand the various dynamics, which significantly impact employee benefit plans
and their administration.
