SMU’s Department of Human Resources continues its information programs on new retirement plan administrator Diversified with a series of discussions on the fine points of how the change will affect faculty and staff members.
Diversified will conduct a series of on-campus group education meetings to discuss the transition in greater detail – including how the move will affect individual accounts and what participants should do to prepare for the change. The meetings will take place Sept. 26-30 and Oct. 5, 2011.
About 600 faculty and staff members attended campus meetings in early September to get a general overview of key changes and their advantages, says Jeff Strese, executive director of human resources. Diversified will assume its administration and recordkeeping duties for the SMU retirement plans in January 2012.
