Helping Third Party Administrators Attract New Sales
The Principal announces new TPA expense allowance program.
December 10, 2009 (Des Moines, IA) - To help financial professionals and third party administrators (TPAs) be more competitive when attracting new sales, the Principal Financial Group® announces a new transition expense allowance program.
Available during the first quarter of 2010, The Principal® is offering a transition expense allowance to help offset the TPA fees during the first year with The Principal. The TPA then has the ability to pass that savings on to the plan sponsor.
"We understand financial professionals and TPAs need to be as competitive as possible in every prospect situation so we are very excited to announce this new program," said Jeff Schreiber, vice president of TPA business development at The Principal. "The transition expense allowance program will give TPAs an edge with potential clients. It is just one more example of our dedication to the TPA marketplace."
The Principal recently announced other enhancements to the Principal TPA EdgeSM program that provide more flexibility in servicing their clients with improvements to its unbundled service model, pricing and technology platform.
