In a news release, Nationwide announced that it is offering the new site, www.nrsespanol.com to more than 700,000 public employees. The plans are associated with the United States Conference of Mayors and the National Association of Counties, as well as other large plans, including the States of New York and Arizona, and Maricopa County, Arizona.
Nationwide said it worked on the site with Bowne Translation Services, a subsidiary of Bowne & Co., which certified the site as not only an accurate translation of investment-education content, but also a translation that uses the most widely understood Spanish among the dialects spoken in the United States.
The site provides general information about retirement plans and investing, as well as financial planning tools, step-by-step explanations and resource information.
In addition to the new site, Nationwide offers participants Spanish- language automated telephone services, as well as customer service representatives and Retirement Specialists who are fluent in Spanish. The firm also plans to develop Spanish- language education workshops in the next year.
