Many academic and not-for-profit retirement plans offered by large providers (such as TIAA, VOYA, AXA, Lincoln Financial Group, etc.) are based on individual annuity contracts (IACs). IAC plans are outdated and don’t meet today’s fiduciary standards or participant needs. Many employers have already moved from an IAC to an open architecture platform.
Whether you still have an IAC plan or have already moved, learn how upgrading your plan can provide a more current, competitive, compliant solution, along with greater fiduciary protection, a wider range of investment choices, cost-efficient fees, increased service support, and enhanced plan education, including individual investment support.
This webinar will cover:
The limitations of current plans in terms of:
• Fiduciary risk
• Excessive costs
• Administrative burdens
• Plan support/service
• Plan education/investment advisory constraints
Solutions for employers that want to upgrade their plans for today’s workplace and participant needs:
• How to remain on your existing IAC platform with proper advisory services.
• How to upgrade to your current vendor's open architecture investment platform.
• How to upgrade to an independent, open architecture platform.
If your current plan provider is on one of these IAC platforms, this session will explain how to improve your current plan design, overall operations, and benefits for plan participants.
