The service helps participants reach their retirement income goals and provides the comprehensive fiduciary support that 403(b) plan sponsors need in today’s environment.”

The service also allows for an investment advisor to select the core fund line-up for the managed portfolios.

StanCorp Financial Group, through its subsidiaries provides group and individual disability insurance, group life, AD&D, vision and dental insurance, retirement plans products and services, individual annuities and investment advice.
