Voya offers new suite of decision-making resources to help plan sponsors drive better retirement outcomes

WINDSOR, Conn., March 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), announced today that it is introducing a suite of new financial planning and education resources to help plan sponsors make decisions that can lead to better retirement outcomes for their employees.  These decisions can include such things as designing an effective plan with choice architecture and automated features, to strategies like re-enrolling plan participants who are not saving enough for retirement.

"Voya has a long history of supporting its clients and distribution partners with tools, resources and thought leadership in the retirement industry," said Marketing Vice President Kellie Desrosiers, head of Sales and Client Engagement. "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."

To support that effort, Voya is launching a package of new materials for clients including a series of informational webcasts and a new digital communication vehicle for plan sponsors across all markets segments.  These resources are designed to encourage greater retirement-planning engagement in the digital age, and will cover topics such as:

  • Improving retirement plans using behavioral science
  • Myth vs. reality: The building blocks for a successful retirement plan
  • How employers can support the special needs community
  • Building retirement relevancy for millennials

This new stream of content will live on voyainsights.voya.com, where plan sponsors can regularly access the latest news and insights to help improve retirement plan health and outcomes for participants.
