The Standard Upgrades Online Retirement Plan Tools

Thursday, March 22, 2012

The Standard has launched two enhanced retirement plan websites to provide advisors, employers and participants with a more informative and intuitive online experience. The two websites are: PlanNet®, a retirement plan management resource for advisors and employers, and Personal Savings Center, a financial savings and management tool for participants.

These online tools have been upgraded based on direct user feedback. PlanNet enhancements include improved navigation for quicker access to popular plan management tools, along with more prominent displays of key plan information, such as plan investment balances and participant activity. Similar enhancements have been made to Personal Savings Center, providing easier access to investment management tools and more prominent displays of key account information, such as current balance, investment return, contribution history and loan activity.

In addition, both websites have increased their use of graphics to help deliver key data and educational information in a more compelling and easier-to-understand format.

"These upgrades are a direct result of our strong collaboration with plan advisors and their clients," said Harley Spring, vice president of Plan Services. "As a result of their feedback, our customers' online experiences are now more intuitive and streamlined, making it easier to quickly access the most important information."

The Standard also recently enhanced its participant statements and enrollment communication materials. "Our high commitment to service has led to our ongoing and significant investments in the tools and resources necessary to help employees reach retirement readiness," Spring added. "We continually listen to advisors and employers to make sure we are delivering on our promises and adding long-term value to our partnerships."
