Engaging and motivating healthcare participants

When asked about their main objective for offering a retirement plan for healthcare workers, 76% of plan sponsors said it’s to help employees save money for retirement—yet only 27% feel they’ve been able to do that.3

We can work together to help plan sponsors achieve their goals with the Lincoln InStep® Participant Retirement Program. Lincoln InStep offers participant communication and education, on-site service, and comprehensive web tools and resources. Together, they help drive higher participant satisfaction and better retirement outcomes.

Our research reveals that retirement plan participants in healthcare fields respond well to one-on-one assistance. Our retirement consultants (RCs) help your clients' plan participants achieve increased retirement readiness by providing on-site personal service and customized solutions. Knowing that some healthcare employees work overnight shifts, our RCs have set up individual meetings and group sessions in the middle of the night to help participants plan for their futures.

  • 63% who attended a one-on-one meeting in the past year increased their contribution rates4
  • 61% who used a calculator on their plan provider's website in the past year increased their contribution rates5
  • 50% who looked at a retirement income projection in the past year increased their contribution rates6
