Staying in the Plan offers long-term benefits

It may be tempting for your employees to take their money when they move on from their job, but the retirement plan that got them this far can help them keep building their future through lower-cost, you-focused options, features and services.

Competitive fees

As a Plan Sponsor, you negotiate lower fees than employees might get on their own. They also avoid the added direct expense a financial professional may charge for many services the Plan offers at no extra cost.


By rolling their eligible outside retirement assets into their retirement plan account, it may be easier to manage their investments.1

Helpful people

Receive award-winning service,2 investment education and personalized support through retirement — at no additional cost.

Decreased tax burden

Your plan may allow you to defer sick, vacation and back pay. Doing so can help your employees smooth or delay the tax impact over several years.

Flexible payout options

Receive money at regular intervals and amounts, or just when employees need it. They should discuss payout options with their tax advisor before making any decisions.

Confident plan oversight

Your plan is required by law to ensure that it operates solely for the benefit of participants and their beneficiaries. To help meet that commitment, investment options are regularly reviewed for a variety of factors so you can determine whether they are suitable and appropriate for the Plan.

Intuitive online tools and resources

You have a suite of tools and educational resources at your fingertips, available anytime and on any device — at no additional cost.

Timely communications

You get the right information at the right time so you can make informed decisions about your account.
