ING’s U.S. Retirement business announced today that it was chosen as the retirement plan services provider for Serco Inc.’s employer-sponsored defined contribution retirement program.  These services are provided by ING U.S.’s institutional corporate market division, which offers retirement plan services for large corporate employers.

The Serco Inc. retirement program consists of two 401(k) plans serving approximately 11,000 participants.

“ING U.S.’s proven track record supporting large plans – especially for employers like us that provide professional, technology and management services focused on the federal government – was an important part of our decision,” said Candy Curtin, vice president of Human Resources for Serco Inc.  “We were also impressed with their relationship management model and the knowledge and administrative experience of the team, along with the full suite of investment, technology and education solutions to help our employees take greater control of their retirement planning and saving.”

As part of its approach to driving positive retirement outcomes, ING U.S. will provide Serco Inc. employees access to personalized, objective investment and retirement planning advice, along with industry-leading decision tools and education programs designed to engage and motivate employees to save.
