Guardian Adds LPL Worksite Solutions

A Worksite platform integration lets LPL advisers and reps offer plan sponsors and plan participants access to The Guardian Choice and The Guardian Advantage products.

The Worksite platform features solutions that will enable retirement plan sponsors and financial professionals to address the needs of plan participants throughout their financial lives, from the date of hire, to separation and beyond, via Worksite’s Employee Transition and Engagement Solutions. Plan sponsors can efficiently enroll employees into retirement plans and assist them during other transition times, such as separation from the firm.

Components of the program include customized financial education support services, asset rollover assistance, education and support for separating and terminated participants, and personalized strategies to meet retirement goals.

As a specialist in the small-plan market, Guardian constantly looks for ways to offer large-plan services to its micro- to small-plan clients, according to Douglas Dubitsky, vice president of Guardian Retirement Solutions. “Plan sponsors who work with Guardian Retirement Solutions and LPL Financial will now have access to powerful employee transition and engagement solutions that will improve the enrollment, management and support experience for retirement plan participants,” Dubitsky says.

Efficient account transition is an integral component of the Worksite Financial Solutions platform, which represents LPL Retirement Partners’ vision for the future of the retirement advisory industry, notes Bill Chetney, president of LPL Financial Retirement Partners.
