It’s here: The new Principal app


Think of an app you love. It saves you time. It’s useful. Maybe it’s personalized and motivational. As we reimagined our mobile app for retirement plan participants, we thought about these things. And we thought about meeting our customers’ expectations and needs.

Now, it’s here. The brand-new Principal® app is ready to roll. It’s streamlined for convenience and speed. It provides quick insight and allows efficient account changes. It helps participants plan, save and connect on the go.

The highlights

  1. Participants can enable fingerprint or facial recognition to open the app. Or they can use their existing principal.com login credentials.
  2. The app serves up a participant’s Retirement Wellness Score – an estimated percentage of pre-retirement income they may be able to maintain at retirement – plus an easy-to-read snapshot of how much they may need to save based on assumptions and goals they’ve set.
  3. From better budgeting to student loans to other financial situations, the app provides in-the-moment educational content.
  4. Participants can quickly update contributions, change up investment elections and more.
  5. High fives all around. We celebrate successes related to the plan, moment to milestone.

The launch

The app goes live in the iOS and Google Play stores the week of Feb. 25. You can send your clients and their participants to principal.com/onthego for details and download instructions. You may also share this brochure.

Plus: In with the new means out with the old. The old Principal® mobile app will be removed from the app stores the week of March 4. Existing app users will be prompted to delete the old and download the new.
