Go Paperless and Plant A Tree

April 21, 2003 (PLANSPONSOR.com) - One plan provider has come on an interesting way to encourage paperless prospectuses and other investment material.

For every participant agreeing to electronic delivery of prospectuses and annual and semi-annual reports in a Lincoln Financial Group plan, the National Arbor Day Foundation will plant a tree in a national forest destroyed by fire or plundered by disease, Lincoln said in a news release.

Plan participants who elect Lincoln Online Delivery will continue to receive quarterly statements via regular US mail, the company said. Lincoln Online Delivery is available to participants in the Lincoln Alliance Program , a retirement program for large employer-sponsored retirement savings plans.
