Authorization Letters and Power of Attorney

Early in the process of implementing new 403(b) Regulations, letters from CCC Client Employers authorizing CCC to act on behalf of the District with respect to contract exchanges within the plan and plan-to-plan transfers were made available for viewing on the CCC website. With those Authorization Letters posted, exchanges and transfers have been, and continue to be, allowed only to accounts of Vendors that have either CCC Umbrella Information Sharing Agreements or District-specific Vendor Information Sharing Agreements in force.

Vendors Eligible To Receive Exchanges/Transfers

CCC has advised all employers for whom we provided 403(b) Plan Administrative Services to require Information Sharing Agreements be established between the District and a Vendor before contract exchanges, transfers or rollover contributions into their plans are allowed. Generally, CCC requires that Vendors enter into an Umbrella CCC Hold Harmless and Information Sharing Agreement (HH+ISA) with CCC before such transactions will be allowed. However, in circumstances where a specific Vendor steadfastly refuses to enter into a CCC Umbrella Information Sharing Agreement, Vendor Information Sharing Agreements directly with individual Districts are allowed, such agreements assigning employer information sharing responsibilities to CCC.

When Vendors enter into Umbrella CCC Hold Harmless and Information Sharing Agreement , CCC requires that the Vendors provide specimen copies of their 403(b) annuity contracts and/or their 403(b)(7) custodial account agreements.
