  • Here’s what we commonly hear
  • Unfamiliar language and plan rules can be confusing
  • A multitude of investment options with varying performance and fees can be frustrating.
  • It sometimes feels like financial professionals pay more attention to people who already have a nest egg. The State of Indiana’s Hoosier S.T.A.R.T. Deferred Compensation Plan was designed to help address these retirement challenges.

Here’s how we can help By eliminating unnecessary rules and restrictions, we’ve made participating east for both employees and employer. By providing a sensible menu of diverse, low-cost investment options, we’ve simplified the selection process for do-it-yourselfers while giving those seeking investment advice or guidance a variety of helpful options. In a bold move, we’ve issued independent contracts to professionals who help us ensure that every Hoosier public employee has access to a retirement plan that’s designed, monitored and serviced in their best interests.

Maybe you don’t have a deferred compensation plan and wonder if your pension and Social Security will be enough? Maybe you already offer a deferred compensation plan and are just curious if participation and utilization could be better?
