You can also talk to your advisor to find out how pension risk transfer could work for your business.

How does a pension risk transfer work?

Essentially, you exchange your current defined benefit plan for a product called a single premium group annuity. This helps to protect your business, so you can guarantee employees under your pension plan will receive their benefits.*

We then provide benefit payment and administrative services according to your needs, ensuring that you fulfill your responsibility to your employees in retirement.

We won’t just give you a quote and make the sale. We’ll help guide you through underwriting, installation and ongoing administrative services. We understand what makes your plan situation unique. (And the 5,000 plan sponsors across a range of industries who have chosen us could agree.1)

And because we work in the small-to-medium business space, we can make nearly all plan provisions work, from the most basic to the most complex.
