Our digital experience is all about access and action to generate greater engagement, more savings and better retirement outcomes.
An employee's projected income is the focal point of the website experience, allowing them to quickly view the percent of their estimated income they are on track to replace. They can also compare their savings to their peers' savings, view their estimated healthcare costs in retirement and take immediate action to make changes.
Every interaction employees have with us should create an action — and get them that much closer to realizing their retirement savings goals.
Our participant website is a driving force behind increasing savings rates among employees.1 It gives them a personalized view of their estimated monthly retirement income, and it allows them to quickly and easily see where they stand, how far they may need to go and what steps to consider next.
