The firm says the site helps both plan sponsors and plan advisers/consultants manage and optimize plan operations, drive outcomes and engage employees.
Key features of the site include:
- Comprehensive plan analytics, with multidimensional data filtering and reporting capabilities that provide plan sponsors with access to detailed plan participant information. Insights gleaned from this data can be used to develop employee engagement strategies that can help improve retirement readiness.
- A section dedicated to fiduciary and compliance resources and tools to help plan sponsors understand and fulfill their fiduciary responsibilities and adhere to any compliance requirements. Plan sponsors receive clear direction to better manage plans, in addition to the tools and resources to help them understand their fiduciary duties and responsibilities.
- A single access point to regulatory updates and developments, TIAA-CREF’s plan sponsor newsletters, thought leadership and information about upcoming plan sponsor webinars. Other features include enhanced transactional capabilities, easy access to forms and educational resources for plan sponsors and their participants.
TIAA-CREF notes that DALBAR, a financial services market research firm, has recognized PlanFocus as a leading retirement plan sponsor website. “We listened carefully to the needs and challenges of clients and consultants to create a site that provides access to information, tools and resources to help them best administer their plan, support fiduciary duties and track plan goals,” says Susan Fulshaw, managing director, product development at TIAA-CREF.
