PensionGold Software

Pension Administration Software

Our PensionGold® software is the most innovative and advanced pension administration solution available today. Designed for today’s emerging web technologies, PensionGold is a browser-based retirement solution with comprehensive features tailored specifically for defined benefit pension plans. This fully integrated pension administration software is built using the knowledge, insight and experience we have acquired over the past three decades.

Configurable. Flexible. Scalable. PensionGold is built upon our proprietary Enterprise Solutions Foundation (ESF) platform. ESF is a multi-tiered, service-oriented architecture (SOA) that not only powers the run-time of PensionGold’s robust feature set, but also provides the design-time configuration tools used to efficiently implement our customer’s unique and changing business requirements.

All of this together with one or more of PensionGold’s extensions – MemberDirect, EmployerDirect, EDMDirect and Workflow – provides a fully-equipped, state-of-the-art retirement solution designed to maximize administrative efficiencies, eliminate unnecessary operating costs, and provide extraordinary service to your members.

Software and Extensions


PensionGold is a comprehensive, line-of-business application used by retirement systems to fully administer their plans and provide service to their membership. Our defined benefit administration software is constructed upon our ESF technical platform allowing it to be easily customized and extended to meet each customer's unique administrative needs.

"Commercial Off-the-Shelf"

PensionGold is a true COTS solution. While each software implementation is unique, they all begin with our standard and fully-functional base software that is proactively maintained by our Product Development team. This means that you not only start with a solution that is proven and reliable, but you also benefit from the continued enhancements made to our base software going forward while in Product Support.


PensionGold includes an extensive list of standard, configurable and customizable features including but not limited to:

  • Membership Tracking
  • Account Maintenance
  • Customer Relationship Management
  • Correspondence
  • Counseling Appointments
  • Employer Reporting
  • Service Purchase
  • Benefit Calculations
  • Benefit Payment
  • Seminars
  • Reporting

Intelligent Presentation

Our software was designed with the end user in mind to work with you and not against you. We refer to this as our "Intelligent Presentation Design." PensionGold presents information in a consistent and intuitive manner, making informed decisions based on who or what you are working with in the software.

PensionGold supports today's most popular web browsers including Internet Explorer®, Edge®, Firefox®, Chrome® and Safari®.
