Help your employees save with a 401(k) retirement plan

How can a 401(k) plan help employees save?

Equitable's participant website and online tools can be used by employees to help provide guidance on setting retirement goals, determining how much to save and educating themselves, at their own pace, throughout the enrollment process and beyond. We also offers financial education emails to help your employees better understand the importance of saving and preparing for retirement.

Option for retirement certainty1

While employees can have a variety of investments from which to choose, they may want more certainty in their asset growth. The Equitable Fixed Account1 is designed to accommodate that certainty, which provides a minimum fixed interest on savings, no matter what.
