Participating in your workplace retirement plan is a terrific foundation for retirement readiness. But putting money in the plan is not the same as having a thought-out retirement strategy.

Your retirement plan offers an advisory service called Managed Advice. It creates a personalized retirement strategy just for you, based on the principles of professional retirement planning.

How does Managed Advice work?

The more detail you add to your profile, the more customized your retirement strategy becomes. It brings together the pieces below, giving you a strong foundation for a successful retirement. 

Personalized investment portfolio

Using funds in your employer’s fund lineup, the service builds a completely tailored portfolio.

Contribution rate recommendation

How much money should you be contributing to the plan to reach your retirement goals?

Target retirement age

By reviewing your salary, account balance, and contribution rate, the service can calculate when you may be able to retire.

Social Security & outside accounts integration

Incorporate your estimated Social Security benefit along with any other financial accounts you may have.

Automatic account rebalancing

Stay in line with your desired investment approach as you navigate the road to retirement.

Professional one-on-one support

Take advantage of guidance from Transamerica financial professionals to pursue the retirement you deserve. 

How much does it cost?

This service is available for less than what you typically pay an independent financial advisor.1 Now, first-time subscribers can try the service for free. After your free trial, the fee is no more than 0.45% annually, which comes to about 38 cents for every $1,000 in your account per month. For specific fee information, please log in to your account.
