By complementing our qualified defined contribution (DC) offering with our defined benefit (DB), nonqualified (NQ) and actuarial consulting services, we provide a single source for retirement portfolio administration and information.


By allowing us to administer qualified DC, DB and NQ plans, employers benefit from a seamless integration across our service teams. This allows us to streamline the process for a consistent overall experience.

Plan management

We provide plan design consulting, plan sponsor and employee websites, education, trustee, check and tax services, and more to help manage day-to-day plan needs.

All in one place

We can also integrate an employee health savings account, stock equity plans, student debt solutions and more without requiring a change in providers. This provides a comprehensive snapshot of an individual’s overall benefits in one centralized location.

Defined contribution plans

Empower offers innovative financial services solutions in plan administration design, enrollment services, recordkeeping, communications and investment options to public, corporate, nonprofit, government and Taft-Hartley plans. Our mission is to help individuals pursue the financial future they imagine while allowing plan sponsors to provide a competitive benefits package with minimal administrative burden.

Defined benefit plans

We know defined benefit plans can be an important part of an individual’s overall retirement income. With more than 90 years3 of expertise, Empower provides a comprehensive solution to streamline all aspects of managing a DB plan as part of an integrated view of a retirement program. Our four pillars of DB services provide an increasingly streamlined experience for sponsors and their employees. Our pillars include:

Nonqualified plans

Recruiting and retaining key employees is important to all companies. These key employees often need retirement savings in excess of qualified plan accounts to maintain their lifestyles. Providing opportunities to enhance retirement savings is a valuable benefit that can help to achieve recruitment and retention objectives. We have over 60 years3 of experience and NQ experts available to help develop a meaningful total rewards package for a retirement plan.

Plan design consultants

Our Empower Benefit Consulting Services (EBCS) team includes an actuarial consultancy of 25+ credentialed consultants with over 20 years’ experience on average to help manage the unique risks associated with defined contribution, defined benefit and nonqualified plans.
