Account Access on the Go!

The Newport Group, a national provider of retirement and executive benefit plans, today announced the release of a mobile version of its plan participant website plandestination.com. The new site gives retirement and executive benefit plan participants the ability to quickly and conveniently view important account information from their mobile device.

Participants can view account balances, personal performance, statements, past and pending transactions, and investment portfolio details. In addition, the site offers a consolidated view across multiple retirement and benefit plans.

“Newport’s mobile experience is compatible with the leading devices and platforms, including Apple, Android, and Blackberry,” said Eric Brickman, Newport Senior Vice President, Strategic Solutions Group. “Plan participants in any Newport retirement or executive benefit plan can access the site directly by entering the plandestination.com URL into their smartphone.”

The market research firm Dalbar has consistently ranked plandestination.com among the top 10 sites in the retirement industry. And the site has also been a consistent winner of “best in class” honors from Newport’s retirement plan sponsors.

“Newport has a tradition of providing technology innovation in retirement and executive benefit services,” Brickman said. “With this site, we’re pleased to continue making retirement account access easy, convenient, and focused on the needs of participants.”
