St. Paul, MN, August 25, 2011 – Employers can find more information faster about their Securian Retirement plans on the company’s new web portal for defined contribution plan sponsors at

“We started this redesign with a lot of research about how our plan sponsors told us they use the web to manage their plans,” said Rick Ayers, vice president, Securian Financial Group, Inc. “The result is a site that’s more secure with simplified navigation that sophisticated and casual users will appreciate. It’s what our plan sponsors asked for.”

Major improvements include:
·        A dashboard landing page organized with plan administrators and fiduciaries in mind that gives users fast access to the tools and information they use most;
·        A new employee summary page that presents all employee information on a single screen, including the plan features and services chosen by each employee;
·        Enhanced security that protects sensitive information and allows users to manage their IDs and passwords online.

The site also incorporates technology that makes it easier for Securian to add new and enhanced services that plan sponsors need to keep costs down, meet employee needs and provide a high quality employee benefit.

“These upgrades will save employers time and provide quick access to the tools they need to provide a superior 401(k) benefit,” said Ayers.

The banner at the top of the homepage leads to a tutorial that walks plan sponsors through the site improvements.

Now one of the nation’s largest financial services providers, it is the holding company parent of a group of companies that include Minnesota Life Insurance Company.
