Voya Financial announced that it is introducing a suite of financial planning and educational resources for plan sponsors. Different components will address various tasks including designing an effective plan with choice architecture and automated features, and re-enrolling plan participants who are not saving enough for retirement in appropriate investments.
The package also includes a series of webcasts covering a range of topics such as improving retirement plans using behavioral science, exploring the myths and realities behind the building blocks of a successful retirement plan, different ways employers can support the special needs community, and building retirement relevancy for Millennials. The firm will also launch a new digital communication vehicle for plan sponsors across all segments.
This new stream of content will go live on voyainsights.voya.com.
"Voya has a long history of supporting its clients and distribution partners with tools, resources and thought leadership in the retirement industry," says Marketing Vice President Kellie Desrosiers. "This work includes extensive education and awareness campaigns; insightful consumer and plan sponsor research and, most recently, the launch of a pioneering new institute dedicated to the field of behavioral finance. We have the expertise and experience to help people prepare more thoughtfully for their future. Voya is committed to helping Americans retire better, and we have the knowledge and resources to show them how."
The firm’s webcast, “Helping Americans Save in the Information Age,” will launch on Wednesday, March 15, from 11:00-11:30 a.m. EST; and from 2:30-3:00 p.m. EST.
It will be presented by Jillian Verspyck, Customer Experience Strategy; and Tom Armstrong, Retirement Digital Solutions. Verspyck notes, "This webcast will go beyond understanding digital consumption to take a closer look at how Voya is actively using digital to research behavioral science concepts, and how we're helping plan sponsors and their participants make decisions that lead to better retirement outcomes."
