Firm Redesigns Plan Sponsor, Participant Websites

June 3, 2013 ( – BB&T Retirement and Institutional Services has redesigned its two websites to better serve plan sponsors and participants.

“The redesigned websites were the result of extensive research,” said BB&T Retirement and Institutional Services Division Manager Ray McCulloch. “We found plan sponsors want more information on how to help their employees become retirement ready, and that participants want easy-to-navigate retirement planning tools and account information to simplify the retirement planning process.”

Retirement plan sponsors now have access to additional retirement planning resources, such as industry news, fiduciary and compliance updates, worksheets and stock research.

The participant website now offers education sections for different stages of retirement planning, as well as user interface changes such as easier menu navigation, tab viewing, new charts, in-page help and PDF confirmations. Participants will also have access to interactive retirement planning tools, videos, and additional investment and retirement planning services offered by BB&T.

“Our goal was to create an online retirement destination for both plan sponsors and participants. The websites provide plan sponsors with tools on how to maintain a healthy retirement plan, and helps participants of all ages plan for their retirement,” said McCulloch.

BB&T Retirement and Institutional Services offers employee benefits consulting, fiduciary, philanthropic, corporate trust and investment management services. For more information about the redesigned websites, visit
