The Newport Group, a leading national provider of retirement plans, executive benefits and investment consulting services, announced that its award-winning participant account statements and participant website are now available in Spanish — at just the touch of a button.
ORLANDO, Fla. (Business Wire EON) December 9, 2008 -- These new resources are in addition to Spanish language enrollment kits and bilingual benefit and investment specialists available through Newport's Client Service Center. With these materials, Newport continues to address the needs of Spanish-speaking retirement plan participants, according to Newport Chief Marking Officer Tom Pittman.
"One of Newport's strengths in the retirement and benefit plan marketplace is effectively communicating with participants about the benefits of their plan and making it easy for them to participate," said Pittman.
"Many of our plan sponsors have large populations of Spanish-speaking employees as well as those who speak other languages. Our communication and technology teams are constantly creating new ways to break down language barriers for participants to help them better understand and embrace their retirement benefits."
Newport's industry-leading participant website plandestination.com includes complete account information including current balances, the ability to perform transactions, and retirement and financial education material. For plan sponsors, the site provides the ability to administer the plan easily online. Any plan sponsor or participant can simply select the "En Espaol" link at the top of the site's homepage to instantly translate the site into Spanish.
"Language should never be a barrier on the path to retirement," Pittman remarked. "These enhancements make it easier than ever for Spanish-speaking participants to enroll in benefit plans, make informed decisions, and plan the best route to reach their financial destinations."
