Can we help you find something?

Increasingly complex regulations and a financially-stressed workplace are fueling litigation, audits and delayed retirements—all of which can negatively impact your organization’s bottom line.

Let Cerity Partners help ensure you’re taking the necessary steps to minimize your risk exposure and maximize retirement readiness.

Our proprietary Plan Health SmartCard examines more than 50 key performance indicators tied to the five critical dimensions of plan success to identify what’s working and what’s not. Here is a small sample of what we review:

  • Plan Design. Are you taking full advantage of elective provisions that can bolster outcomes such as auto- escalation?
  • Fiduciary Governance. Do you have fully documented policies and procedures for your plan committee?
  • Investments. How well are you balancing traditional investment strategies with behavioral finance?
  • Retirement Readiness. What percentage of your employees are at risk for having insufficient retirement savings?
  • Vendor Management. Does your plan committee understand your recordkeeper’s cybersecurity policy and the guarantees in case of fraud or breaches?

The “average” plan tends to score in the low- to mid-50s based on national benchmarking data and our methodology.

With our Plan Health Smartcard, you’ll receive a road map for achieving a score of 85 or higher, which we call “blue ribbon status.” That is something your company can be proud of, and your employees will appreciate now and in retirement.
