Plymouth Meeting, PA (PRWEB) September 01, 2016
Dietrich & Associates, the largest national independent advisory firm specializing in insuring employer sponsored retirement benefits, announced today that it will be strengthening its consulting division through a new focus on an alternative means of pension risk transfer. A “buy-in” annuity does not transfer pension liability from employers to insurance companies as a traditional “buy-out” annuity does. Instead, using “buy-ins,” employers can shed risk associated with the liability without triggering the negative accounting repercussions of traditional “buy-outs.”
Explained Geoff Dietrich, Dietrich & Associates Executive Vice President, “Many of our clients have been looking for a different approach to managing their pension risk. As part of our long-time commitment to providing creative solutions to client challenges, we are now prioritizing the development and presentation of “buy-in” alternatives to best address these needs.”
In addition to presenting regular webinars on pension risk transfer and other related topics, Dietrich & Associates offers a wide array of free educational materials through its You Tube page at https://www.youtube.com/user/DietrichAssociates.
