The site, metlife.retirementpartner.com, aims to give clients a better way to prepare for their retirement income needs by grouping tools and resources into the three stages of the retirement process: getting started, staying on track, and planning your retirement. Members will be able to access their account and see all their statements and account information on the new site. The Web site also contains educational materials, calculators, and other tools to help users through each step of their retirement savings process.
Other new features include:
• An “Account-at-a-Glance” feature with access to account history, financial planning tools, and forms.
• Comprehensive educational content available before log-in, accessible to all employees not just plan participants.
• Interactive tools such as calculators and multimedia presentations, covering a range of topics from basic investment concepts to how much income may be needed in retirement.
• A visually engaging look with “tiles” similar to smartphone applications.
