Company History

The roots of our firm trace back to 1953 when Irving E. "Bud" Shaffer began his career as the salaried administrator of the New Jersey IBEW Welfare Fund. The 1950's represented the infancy of employee benefit plans and he was soon asked to separately administer several other welfare and pension funds. He established I. E. Shaffer & Co. in 1957 and became one of the original "Taft-Hartley" plan administrators in the United States. Today, the firm remains family owned and managed by Bud Shaffer's sons - Glenn D. Shaffer, CEBS (President), Irving Scott Shaffer, CEBS (Secretary/Treasurer) and William Jeffrey Shaffer, CEBS (Senior Vice President), along with Jon D. Levine, CEBS (Vice President) and Carl Bellina, CPA (Controller).
