Maximize Your Dignity Retirement Account

Like most retirement plans, the Dignity Health retirement account (Fidelity 403b/401a) offers limited investment options and minimal planning support. As such, the average plan participant is unlikely to optimize investment performance or make prudent planning decisions. It is estimated that the lack of adequate support costs the average participant 3% a year and reduces savings by 79% over a career.  1,2,3,4

Our independent Pre-Retirement Services help to maximize retirement benefits by avoiding the cost associated with inadequate support. By combining continuous professional investment management with comprehensive local planning support, we expect the average investor to reduce risks and recapture about 3% a year in unnecessary loss. This savings may allow a participant to retire earlier and/or with greater wealth.

Pre-Retirement Services for Dignity Health Employees

We work directly with individual employees of Dignity Health to help develop and protect the wealth needed to retire with confidence. We work within personal Fidelity 403b/401a accounts to expand investment options, facilitate personalized strategies, and reduce the cost of inadequate management. Our complementary planning services support the high level personal organization needed to confidently maximize progress towards retirement goals.

How It Works

This opportunity is facilitated through the Self-Directed Brokerage Account (SDBA) built into the Dignity retirement plan. Through the SDBA we may help participants retain the professional portfolio management services of an experienced Registered Investment Advisor (RIA). The RIA functions as an independent fee-only fiduciary. As your Investment Advisor Representative (IAR), we share the RIA's normal fee, provide complimentary financial planning support, and continuously monitor results.
