Who is TSA Consulting Group and what is a 403(b) plan?

Companies approved for payroll deduction



As the 403(b) Plan Administrator for the Lafayette Parish School System, TSA Consulting Group, Inc. (TSACG), has developed an online record-keeping system for you to use when requesting loans, rollovers, distributions, and contract exchanges from your 403(b) account.  This new system is the Aggregated Records and Transactions System, or ART System.  ART will expedite the time required to process your request. 

If you are planning to request a loan, rollover, exchange, or distribution from one or more of your TSA accounts, you will need to establish an ART user name and password.  To establish your initial ART System log-in, just follow the steps below. 

Step 1:  Visit the secure ART log-in website at  Enter your social security number (SSN) as your initial user ID.  Enter your SSN with no dashes (e.g., 123456789). Enter your date of birth as your initial password.  Do not use dashes, and enter the date in the following format: mmddyyyy. 

Step 2:  Enter answers to the two security questions asked.

Step 3:  Follow the on-screen instructions to change your initial user name and password from your SSN and birth date to a unique user name and password that no one else can guess or identify. 

Step 4:  Proceed to the "Personal Profile" tab at the top of the screen and enter your e-mail address.  By providing an e-mail address, you will be able to receive system notifications. 

Upon completion of Steps 1 through 4, please refer to the tabs located on the upper menu bar on the web page to view your account summary information, initiate online transactions, or view online transaction history.  You may click on "Help" for a complete guide to the ART System. 

Once you have entered and completed a transaction--once it is approved--ART will generate an Approval Certificate that you are required to print, sign, and send to the respective investment provider for execution of your transaction.  Before mailing this certificate, verify with your investment provider what additional signed documentation they may require you to sned along with your signed Approval Certificate. 

If you have any questions regarding the ART System, please call TSACG toll free at 888-796-3786 and asked for ART assistance.
