Employers spend a lot of time and money on creating attractive retirement benefits for their employees, however many do not really understand or appreciate this provision. A good member communications and education package can address this issue and should include giving members access to information and the tools they need to plan for their retirement.

Why Mercer

Mercer OneviewTM offers employers the opportunity to enhance their relationships with employees and to encourage them to make the most of their pension investments. Simply, we offer a range of targeted high quality web-based benefit communication tools to encourage members to monitor and implement pension transactions online as well as educating them about their scheme and benefits.

 

In addition, Mercer OneView™ gives active and deferred members immediate access to their pension scheme data, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

  • Give more responsibility to your members for their retirement planning
  • Reduce the number of queries to your HR department
  • Educate your members more about the value of their retirement benefits

Features of Mercer OneView™

"I went on this morning to review and amend my investment strategy. I found the process extremely easy and logical. It was much more user friendly than most financial websites which still tend to be full of jargon and pension speak."
