When Mary Grason, the new third party administrator of the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association’s Backstretch Pension Plan learned the MTHA board wanted to make helpful changes to the Plan recently, she saw it as a confirmation of what she has found during the year since Pollard and Associates took over the Plan’s administration.
“The MTHA Board really cares about the people on the backstretch,” Grason says. “They want this plan to be meaningful to them and every change they’ve made is designed to make the Plan more accessible to its participants.”
Grason says when MTHA executive director David Richardson approached her with issues the board wanted to improve, she was delighted to be able to tell them, “We can make some minor changes that will address your concerns without changing the basic structure of the plan, which is meeting your objectives.”
