Desjardins Insurance group retirement mobile site provides quick, easy plan access

Participants with smartphones able to connect anytime, anywhere

LÉVIS, QC, March 18, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - In keeping with public demand for more smartphone access (i.e. Blackberry, iPhone, or android) to their finances, Desjardins Insurance has launched a new mobile site called yourwaymobile.ca.

The site — a simplified version of the participant website — provides participants with secure access to their group retirement savings assets, contributions, transactions and rate of returns. These enhancements make it quick and easy for participants to access the most frequently searched information anytime, anywhere.

"Our research has shown that when you offer participants a variety of tools, you increase the likelihood that they will become more engaged in their retirement plan," said Eric Filion, vice-president of Development, Marketing and Investment Strategies for the Group Retirement Savings division at Desjardins. "We know that one-size does not fit all and since most people today use smartphones, yourwaymobile.ca gives them the flexibility to view their account in the format they prefer using."

Since the initial launch of the your way, plain and simple program two years ago, the Group Retirement Savings division has introduced a variety of education tools that incorporate social media and augmented reality elements aimed to engage participants. "We're committed to providing innovative solutions that keep participants involved in their own retirement planning," continued Filion.
