Training Resources for FPIF Account Reps

About Our Account Representatives

Account Representatives are designated by the Participating Pension Funds’ Authorized Agents via the GCM Authorization Setup Form. Consistent with FPIF rule, Funds are allowed up to four Account Representatives that consist of the following individuals:

  • 3 – voting board members and/or treasurer
  • 1 – non-voting representative appointed by resolution

Only Account Representatives have authority to facilitate transfers via the Northern Trust Global Cash Movement Portal (GCM) and access to retrieve monthly account statements. GCM training is available to Account Representatives in the form of reference guides and pre-recorded videos found at the bottom of this page.

Changes to Account Representatives

A participating pension fund is responsible for promptly providing FPIF with any updates or revisions to its Account Representatives. All changes must be executed by both of the Participating Pension Fund’s Authorized Agents utilizing the GCM Maintenance Form.

Recurring Instructions

In addition to one-time transfers requested via GCM, Account Representatives may enroll a Participating Pension Fund in a recurring withdrawal to be received on the 14th of each month. All recurring withdrawals remain effective for one calendar year and must be renewed on an annual basis. Recurring withdrawals are implemented utilizing the GCM Recurring Instructions Form.
