Newport Adds Spanish to Web Site, Statements

December 9, 2008 (PLANSPONSOR.com) -The Newport Group is now making its participant account statements and participant Web site available in Spanish.

A Newport news release said the Web site features account information including current balances, the ability to perform transactions, and retirement and financial education material for spanish-speaking participants, and offers plan sponsors the ability to administer plans online.

A user selects the “En Español” link at the top of the site’s homepage to access the Spanish materials, according to Newport.

“Language should never be a barrier on the path to retirement,” said Newport Chief Marking Officer Tom Pittman, in the news release. “These enhancements make it easier than ever for Spanish-speaking participants to enroll in benefit plans, make informed decisions, and plan the best route to reach their financial destinations.”

The Web site enhancement is in addition to Spanish enrollment kits and bilingual benefit and investment specialists available through Newport’s Client Service Center, the company said.
