SunTrust Offers Free Retirement Savings Consult

July 27, 2007 (PLANSPONSOR.COM) - SunTrust Banks has introduced GamePlan, a free service to help individuals save for a more secure retirement.

A SunTrust news release said the service features a free 30-minute telephone consultation with a licensed SunTrust retirement specialist who can tell a person when they can afford to retire, how big their nest egg needs to be, and where they stand regarding their retirement goals.

Ken Yarbrough, Senior Vice President, Director of Retirement Strategies at SunTrust, said in the announcement that GamePlan was designed to help people overcome procrastination about retirement planning.

“Planning for retirement ranks up there with preparing your taxes or a will on a list of things people put off,” he said. “They know it’s something they need to do, but it is usually perceived as a daunting, cumbersome task. GamePlan is a quick, free and easy way to get started. And it’s important to note that this service is provided by a live, trained consultant who will work with you and make suggestions. It’s not a ‘do-it-yourself’ online service or calculator.”
