STATE OF IOWA’S RETIREMENT INVESTORS CLUB 403(B), 457(B) AND THE 401(A) PLANS
The Iowa RIC retirement plans are all now under the Empower recordkeeping system!
All plans and your participants, heritage MM and legacy, are now under one single enhanced website.
The Plan Service Center (PSC) website is your source for participant data and information now that the migration is complete. You will no longer have access to the legacy MassMutual EDGE website. The PSC offers a more streamlined way for you to access quarterly statements, beneficiary information, forms and participant contribution reporting. To learn more on how to gain access click here.
We are currently updating this website with new Empower resources. Be sure to review the new Financial Advisor Resources.
Please check back often as changes will occur over the upcoming weeks. For assistance, please call 833.999.IOWA (4692).
