The Principal Mobile App First to Offer Comprehensive Benefit Info On The Go

Now employees can track their benefits from anywhere on their mobile devices

July 31, 2013 (Des Moines, Iowa) — Making benefit information more accessible, the Principal Financial Group® is the first major employee benefits company to offer members the ability to submit vision claims instantly and check group disability and group term life insurance policies on a mobile device through the Principal® Mobile application.

"The enhanced mobile application shows our commitment to simplifying customers' interactions with us through innovation," said Amy Friedrich, vice president at The Principal®. "The ability to submit vision claims by snapping a photo of a receipt does just that."

"New updates to the mobile application expand the options for customers; making it even more convenient to access comprehensive employee benefit information at their fingertips," said Friedrich.

Principal Mobile was originally launched in July 2011 to allow retirement plan participants to track savings progress, check 401(k) balances and view personalized rate of return. It also provides access to multiple retirement plan types including defined contribution, defined benefit, ESOP and nonqualified. The app is free, secure and easy to use.

Principal Mobile can be downloaded from the App Store (for Apple products) or Google Play today[1]

Participants who have already downloaded the app will receive an automatic notification to update to the newest version.
