WINDSOR, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), announced today that its Retirement business has been selected as the new recordkeeper for the Rollins College Tax Deferred 403(b) Retirement Plan. Cerity Partners, an independent defined contribution plan consultant, assisted Rollins College during its competitive bid and evaluation process.
Rollins College is a private, four-year liberal arts institution and the first recognized college in Florida. Its 403(b) deferred compensation plan is a voluntary retirement savings plan designed to help employees of Rollins College save for their retirement. As of Jan. 1, 2020, its 403(b) retirement plan had more than 2,400 participants representing approximately $178 million in assets under administration. The plan will transition to Voya in the spring.
“We have a responsibility to ensure that our dedicated faculty and staff, many of whom commit their working lives to educating and serving our students, have the tools and resources they need to build a secure financial future,” said Matt Hawks, AVP, Human Resources and Risk Management. “This new relationship with Voya Financial not only helps Rollins College to provide effective stewardship of its retirement plan, but Voya’s easy-to-use digital tools — coupled with its local support and education programs — will enable our busy faculty and staff to quickly understand and take action to achieve their retirement goals. With Voya’s support and guidance, we’re confident more employees will take advantage of this voluntary, yet valuable, benefit to increase their retirement savings.”
“Through a rigorous selection process, the Rollins College retirement committee has once again demonstrated their commitment to the continual improvement of its 403(b) deferred compensation plan on behalf of the school’s employees,” said Rick Harris, principal at Cerity Partners. “I always appreciate partnering with Rollins College because of their willingness to put in the time and hard work necessary to help ensure the retirement readiness of their plan participants.”
