For Plan Sponsors
Your source for plan sponsor resources, administrative forms and participant education materials
Wespath partners with plan sponsors to develop benefit programs for clergy, lay employees and their families. We offer resources and support to help plan sponsors effectively manage their health benefits and retirement plans.
Retirement Webinar Promotional Toolkit
Recognizing the challenges surrounding travelling, schedules and finances, Wespath is offering four Pre-Retirement webinars this fall: October 11, October 27, November 8 and November 29. Titled "The Road to Retirement," these webinars are especially designed for clergy eligible to retire in 2023 or clergy considering retirement in the next few years. Topics include the retirement process, steps to take during the road to retirement, distribution and annuity options for retirement plans (as well as which plan distribution can be deferred), exciting optional and customizable features of LifeStage Retirement Income and navigating Benefits Access.
We love to support clergy on the road to retirement, but we need your help! Please help spread the word and promote these webinars. We've provided a toolkit to help make it easy to create social posts, distribute promotional materials and more to the appropriate staff members and clergy. The toolkit also contains a slide, a handout, and verbiage for your newsletters.
