Defined Benefit Plans

Defined benefit (DB) plans present a lot of opportunity for advisors. But along with that comes some unique challenges. Turns out, you’re in the right place.

As the No. 1 service provider of DB pension plans1 and a leader in pension risk transfer2, we can help. Principal® has a unique and broad set of services and capabilities when it comes to working with DB clients and their plans. But we’re not just saying that, we’ve applied for a patent on our process and services – as the Principal® Complete Pension Solution. The patent pending process can include:

  • Comprehensive defined benefit services – choices include administration, trust and custody of plan assets.
  • State of the art technology integrating plan services such as administrative, actuarial, investment management and pension risk transfer services.
  • An up-front examination and review of your participant data to help ensure it’s in good order for ongoing administration or plan termination.
  • Offer a commitment to quote an annuity when you are ready to permanently transfer risk.
