WavesOur History

Downeast Pension Services (DPS) was founded in Portland, Maine in 1992. Started by a CPA firm, the goal of DPS was to be the leading retirement plan Third Party Administrator (TPA) in the northeast by offering focused expertise for Defined Contribution plans and building a culture of exceptional service.

Today, DPS is an independent TPA, located on the beautiful Pineland campus in New Gloucester, Maine. The DPS team of over 25 professionals provides expert Defined Contribution administration to nearly 900 New England businesses.
