On Sept. 13, 2013 the Internal Revenue Service and U.S. Department of Labor issued Notice 2013-54 and Technical Release 2013-3, respectively, which “clarify” some of the rules as they relate to Health Reimbursement Arrangements (HRA) and pre-tax contributions for certain benefits.

The Harrison Group, with Pete Tyrrell,
review office blueprints.

Thanks to a steady increase in new clients over the past several years, combined with the addition of many new associates, The Harrison Group has outgrown its existing office space. We are pleased to report, that after 10 years at our existing location, we’ll be moving to a larger space on Nov. 29, 2013.

We chose this date since many of you will be closed for the holiday. Our new address will be:


Suite 201

3 Raymond Drive

Havertown, PA 19083

Our other contact information, phone and fax numbers, and email addresses will remain the same.


During the next few weeks, we will be sending our clients updated information, such as claim forms, to give to employees. We will also be sending updated re-enrollment information, assuming that insurance plans renew on Jan. 1, 2014.


 In addition, since we will still be located in Havertown, our mail carriers will take steps to make sure that all of our mail will be forwarded to our new office, until all of our clients are able to update with our new address.

As always, thank you for your continued support.
