Great-West Launches Mobile App for Participants

September 24, 2013 (PLANSPONSOR.com) – Great-West Financial has launched a new mobile Web application (app) providing retirement plan participants with their account information.

Available to all major smartphone devices and browsers, including iPhone and Android phones, the app requires no downloading. It launches automatically when participants visit the Great-West website using a mobile device.

The app gives users access to key information and the ability to track retirement readiness by:

  • Viewing an estimated monthly retirement income amount;
  • Checking account balance and transaction history;
  • Accessing paycheck contribution amount and investment allocations;
  • Monitoring rate of return;
  • Choosing paperless document delivery and viewing online statements; and
  • Accessing the full website on a mobile device with one tap from any page of the mobile Web app.

According to Great-West, user feedback will shape future updates of the app, which is now available to 401(k), 401(a), 403(b) and 457 plan participants who use the Great-West website. Users must be registered with Great-West Financial online via the “Let’s Get Started” link.

“This mobile Web app is designed to make it as easy and convenient as possible for participants to take a more active role in planning for their retirement,” said Charles Nelson, president of retirement services at Great-West Financial, Greenwood Village, Colorado.
