Our History


Twin Towers Plaza Peoria Illinois

ABG Retirement Plan Services (ABGIL) is a regional service office of one of the largest retirement plan administration organizations in the country. For more than 40 years, ABGIL has built up more than $3 billion in retirement plan assets by providing administration for more than 42,500 retirement plan participants and health savings account holders.

Each office of Alliance Benefit Group is independently owned and operated. Alliance Benefit Group licensees combine the power of a large national company with the individual attention and the personalized service of regional offices. Alliance Benefit Group provides national administration for over 1,100,000 plan participants with over $61 billion of retirement plan assets.

From its humble beginnings as Small, Parker, and Ackerman, ABGIL, now located in the Twin Towers Office Plaza in downtown Peoria, employs over 75 associates with experience in consulting, retirement plan administration, payroll, and health savings accounts. The firm also houses a Chicago office and a branch office in Madison, Wisconsin.

ABGIL serves clients in 40 states with our heavy penetration in Illinois, Iowa, Indiana, Missouri, and Wisconsin. Our central location is within a few hours’ drive from St. Louis, Des Moines, Milwaukee, and Indianapolis. Customer service coupled with knowledgeable, dedicated staff has spurred business growth, combining the strength of a national company with the individual attention of a regional office. We welcome on-site “due-diligence” visits to our administration office and can readily provide “face-to-face” attention for training, sales support, and all aspects of the business development cycle.


Minimum training standards are established for all staff. Ongoing continuing education of 20 hours per year is required and tracked during their tenure with our firm.
