Newkirk Provides Book of Communications for Auto Enroll Plans

March 19, 2009 ( - Newkirk, provider of defined contribution plan communications, has announced the availability of an enrollment communication specially designed for Qualified Automatic Contribution Arrangement (QACA) and Eligible Automatic Contribution Arrangement (EACA) plans.

According to a press release, Newkirk’s AutoBook:

  • Provides all necessary information to employees who are about to be automatically enrolled in a sponsor’s plan, including opt-out instructions for plan participation, automatic deferral increase, and default investment;
  • Incorporates Qualified Default Investment Alternative (QDIA) notice information; and
  • Discloses administrative, participant, and investment fees.

AutoBook is customized on a plan-by-plan basis, and users can optionally include additional information such as plan highlights and fund descriptions.
