Developed in response to customer feedback, ftwPro Amend provides complete automation of the amendment process and can be used to prepare a plan amendment based on modifications to any plan provision.

This allows users to select which of the last 10 changes will be included in the amendment. The ftwPro Amend is available for any prototype-style document offered by the company that includes defined contribution, traditional defined benefit, cash balance, 403(b), ESOP and all of the company's welfare documents.
