Time for an Account Check-up?

Your employee's lives change over time and decisions they once made may no longer make sense. Their priorities may have shifted and their Deferred Compensation account should reflect those current goals. 

Depending on what is going on in a participant's life, their financial situation may have changed and their account may be assuming more or less risk than they originally intended. As they get older, they may want to consider reducing their exposure to market risk to protect their portfolio from a market downturn. On the other hand, if their strategy assumes that their pension and/or Social Security is the "fixed" portion of their investment portfolio, they may want to invest more aggressively through their account. Reviewing their strategy and adjusting their account accordingly can be a major benefit of an annual review. Let your staff know that they can call us at 877-644-6457 or visit our website at Ohio457.org.
