Ascensus Launches READYSAVE™ Retirement Mobile App

New App Will Leverage Behavioral Prompts and Situational Guidance to Help Drive Better Retirement Outcomes

Dresher, PAAscensus—whose technology and expertise help millions of people save for retirement, education, and healthcare—has launched READYSAVETM, its retirement mobile application. READYSAVE was developed on Ascensus’ proprietary technology platform for use across the firm’s various institutional partners and is available to all participating employees across Ascensus’ retirement recordkeeping platform. Driven by data and backed by behavioral science, READYSAVE helps participants get—and stay—on track to retirement readiness.

In developing READYSAVE, Ascensus gathered insight and feedback from both institutional partners and top financial advisors in the firm’s Elite Advisor program. Ascensus’ team of user experience design professionals leveraged this feedback and applied best-practice design principles to motivate employees to engage more with their retirement accounts.

“Our goal for our participant experience aligns with that of our plan sponsor clients, institutional partners, and financial advisor partners: to enable more savers to save more,” states Carl Negin, Ascensus’ chief marketing officer. “READYSAVE helps deliver on this goal, giving participants the information they need to chart the appropriate savings strategy.”

In its initial release, READYSAVE features accessibility for visually impaired users and is available in both English and Spanish. (Language preferences on users’ mobile phones will automatically determine which version is downloaded and installed.) Once registered, app users can check their account balances, view their rate of return and plan investments, change their savings rates, and review their recent account activity.

Ascensus, in partnership with external research experts, will continuously evolve the READYSAVE experience based on user analytics and feedback. Users can expect enhancements and new functionality to be released regularly, including in-app behavioral nudges designed to illustrate the long-term impacts of increasing or decreasing one’s retirement savings rate. This “best next step” education will help participants feel more confident in their savings decisions and is scheduled for release later this year.

“The READYSAVE launch represents another major milestone in our journey to invest in our digital technology across all audiences, from the individual saver and plan sponsor to financial advisors,” adds David Musto, Ascensus’ president and CEO. “Our mission is to make these experiences as simple, supportive, and seamless as possible, while driving better business and retirement outcomes for our institutional partners and clients who entrust us with their brands.”

READYSAVE is available for download in the Apple App Store® or on Google Play® for Android devices. To learn more about the READYSAVE experience, view a short video here.

Rosenberg added that the changes in retirement plan provisions enacted in the SECURE Act and CARES Act present new challenges for plan sponsors, making it all the more critical for third-party administrators and their clients to stay abreast of the evolving retirement plan landscape.

“Our team has been providing the most updated information available about 2020 plan changes,” noted Rosenberg. “The articles and videos on INTAC’s COVID-19 resources website page are designed to help employers understand how these bills may affect their workplace retirement plans.”

Ascensus Announces Upcoming Release of READYSAVE™ Retirement Mobile App

Firm’s Ongoing Technology Investment Focuses on Better Outcomes Driven by Data and Backed by Behavioral Science

Dresher, PA—Ascensus—whose technology and expertise help millions of people save for retirement, education, and healthcare—has announced the upcoming release of a proprietary mobile application called READYSAVE™. The app will give users access to their retirement plan accounts to perform key tasks such as enrolling in the plan, checking their balances, changing their savings rates, reviewing recent transactions, and using the Retirement Outlook tool to assess their savings progress.

READYSAVE will be available to all participating employees across Ascensus’ and its outsourced partners’ 401(k) recordkeeping platforms. It represents one of multiple technology investments Ascensus has made that leverages data analytics and behavioral science to deliver meaningful insights at the right time.

“Digital experience continues to be a focus of significant and increased investment for Ascensus,” states Carl Negin, Ascensus’ chief marketing officer. “Our dedicated design and development teams channel their vast expertise in user-centered design, cognitive psychology, and visualization to meet employees’ financial wellness needs and employers’ plan-health objectives.”

READYSAVE will offer a feature that highlights potential consequences of certain decisions in order to encourage positive savings behaviors. As employees make savings decisions, the app will offer illustrations of what those elections might mean for future progress—including projected years to retirement and projected monthly retirement income. This functionality is expected to be released in summer 2020.

Ascensus’ plan sponsor clients recently recognized the company’s commitment to technology leadership in the 2019 PLANSPONSOR Annual Defined Contribution Survey, nominating Ascensus for a total of 15 awards in the technology category (including Participant Call Center, Participant Website, Sponsor Website, Plan Reporting, and Plan Analytics/Benchmarking).

“READYSAVE is the next step in Ascensus’ technology evolution—we’ve redesigned the employee experience to be more supportive, streamlined, and personalized,” adds Negin. “We’ll continue to iterate on READYSAVE and expect to deliver continuous enhancements based on analytics and usage patterns we see from our savers.”

“In the wake of recent market volatility and business challenges, employees are re-evaluating their financial pictures and looking for insights to help them chart appropriate savings strategies,” states David Musto, Ascensus’ president and CEO. “READYSAVE meets this need, helping retirement savers to understand their next steps and to take actions toward achieving more secure futures.”

READYSAVE will be available for download by retirement plan employees in the Apple App Store® or on Google Play® for Android devices beginning this summer. The app will be available in both English and Spanish and will be downloaded in a user’s preferred language based on device settings.

Ascensus Appoints Kevin Cox as Head of Retirement and Peg Creonte as Head of Government Savings

Cox to Succeed Shannon Kelly as Head of Retirement Line of Business

 

Dresher, PA–Ascensus–whose technology and expertise help millions of people save for retirement, education, and healthcare–is pleased to announce the appointment of Kevin Cox as head of its Retirement line of business. The firm is equally happy to share that Peg Creonte will succeed Cox as head of its Government Savings line of business. Both also will continue to build Ascensus’ reputation as a leading technology services provider, partnering with financial institutions and government entities to support the delivery of tax-advantaged savings programs.

Cox succeeds Shannon Kelly, who recently announced her plans to take a professional sabbatical following an outstanding Ascensus career spanning nearly 20 years.

Cox has served as head of Government Savings for the past two years, and prior to that, spent six years as the business line’s chief operating officer. In his new role, Cox will oversee and drive the strategic direction for Retirement, including Ascensus’ full-service retirement plan recordkeeping and administration, along with its compliance, trust, and education and training functions. Prior to joining Ascensus, Cox spent more than a decade in the retirement industry, with a focus on large institutional 401(k) plans during tenures at MFS Investment Management and CIGNA. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Economics and English from Lehigh University and graduated with honors from the Boston College Carroll Graduate School of Management master’s program.

“Kevin has been a valued member of our Government Savings team since 2004 and has led the business with great success since 2018–growing Ascensus’ share of the 529 college savings market, fostering our leadership role in ABLE accounts, and supporting the launch of the nation’s first three state-facilitated retirement programs,” said David Musto, president and CEO of Ascensus. “With more than 25 years of career experience in both the 529 and retirement markets, he brings the depth and breadth of proven experience and success that our clients have come to expect from Ascensus.”

“Shannon has influenced all aspects of our Retirement line of business–bringing client satisfaction to new heights, overseeing material investments in our market-leading technology capabilities, and transforming service and operations to better serve our clients,” Musto continued. “We thank her for being such a tremendous leader within our organization for nearly two decades and for the legacy that she leaves with us.”

Creonte has served as Government Savings’ senior vice president of business development for the past five years, leading a variety of initiatives to grow the business from both a revenue and client retention standpoint. In her new role, she is now responsible for setting the vision and strategy for Government Savings and charting its course for future growth. Creonte brings more than 25 years of experience in business development and technology to her new role. She joined Ascensus in 2004 on the Unite platform team, managed the development and launch of Ugift (the nation’s first “529 gifting” platform), and oversaw a wealth of large-scale data conversions for recordkeeping transitions. Prior to Ascensus, Creonte served in leadership and consulting roles with several technology firms, including Advanced Micro Devices. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from Tufts University and her Master of Business Administration from Cornell University.

“Peg is known for her strong leadership, deep technical background, and impressive track record in new business wins,” said Musto. “Her experience in product, platform, and process development–combined with her ability to build meaningful and substantial partnerships and relationships–made her the clear choice to lead our Government Savings business and its growth.”

Cox and Creonte have assumed their new roles immediately, reporting to Musto, with Kelly remaining onboard through the end of May 2020 to support the leadership transition.

Intac Actuarial Services, Inc. Receives 2020 NJBiz Best Places to Work Honors

Retirement Third-Party Administration Firm Achieves Best Workplaces Ranking for Fifth Time

Woodcliff Lake, NJ—Intac Actuarial Services, Inc., part of FuturePlan by Ascensus (INTAC), is pleased to announce that the firm has once again been named to the NJBiz Best Places to Work list in the medium-sized business category. This is the fifth such recognition for the actuarial firm, which specializes in retirement plan design, implementation, and administration. The award is given by NJBiz, New Jersey’s leading business journal.

Nominations for the annual Best Places to Work list are submitted by associates, who receive surveys asking for feedback regarding associate engagement/satisfaction and benefits. Charles Rosenberg, vice president of INTAC, said that his company’s benefits and culture have led to favorable reviews and high associate retention rates.

“We moved our offices in 2019 to a modern, new space in Woodcliff Lake with lots of natural light and onsite amenities that provide many conveniences for our staff,” notes Rosenberg. “Since then, we’ve added 12 new staff members and our retention is at an all-time high, in part because of our associate benefits, which stand out in our industry. We believe if we take care of our team, they’ll take care of our clients—which is so important to us.”

Illustrating his point about retention, Rosenberg added that a senior associate, Pam Cavallo, retired at the end of March after 31 years with the firm. Cavallo credits her long career there to the trust, teamwork, and flexibility embedded in INTAC’s corporate culture.

“I started working for founders Max and Harry Rosenberg, who were easy to work with and had complete trust and faith in their associates,” says Cavallo. “They were flexible about meeting my scheduling needs when family matters became a priority through the years. They also fostered great camaraderie at the office, where I’ve made many long-lasting friendships.”

Cavallo added that there were only about 8 associates when she began her career at INTAC. Today, there are more than 60.

INTAC is located at 50 Tice Boulevard in Woodcliff Lake, N.J. It is part of FuturePlan, a national TPA formed by 28 outstanding legacy firms to create a unique market position: high-touch service from expert local TPAs backed by the strength and security of a large national firm.
