Plan 3 and DCP customers: New account tools and features coming April 26, 2018

Posted 05-Mar-2018

At DRS, your retirement success is important to us. To better serve you, we are upgrading many of the tools and resources we offer. On April 26, your Plan 3/Deferred Compensation Program online account is upgrading to a new mobile-friendly platform with more tools to track and manage your retirement. Here is a quick overview of the upgrades taking place.

What will April 26 look like?

  • Compare your savings to your peers; or view how health care costs might affect your savings in retirement.
  • Add your pension or other retirement accounts for a complete picture of your retirement savings goals—it will save the info for you, and you can update it any time.
  • The new retirement projection tool can help you find out how much more you can save by increasing DCP contributions or delaying retirement.
  • Change your DCP contributions with the touch of a slider, and you’ll have the option to auto-increase your DCP savings annually!
  • Upload documents through your online account and get annual tax documents online.

Will the upgrade affect my account access?

To complete the website upgrade and system maintenance, you will not be able to access your Plan 3/DCP online account for a brief period of time between 1 pm April 25 and 10 am April 26 (Pacific Time).

What should I do now?

The upgrades are automatic, so you don’t need to do anything. For a sneak peek at some upcoming features, take a look at this three-minute video.
