USI UPDATES WEBSITE
November 11, 2013 USI Consulting Group (USICG) will be officially launching a newly designed website (www.usicg.com). The new design encompasses a contemporary look, more intuitive navigation and a streamlined user experience.
The Direct Solutions account access and service center pages have been reorganized to improve functionality, with a focus on finding desired information quickly. A brief description will display for all Direct Solutions buttons when the user places their cursor over the buttons. Participants and Plan Sponsors seeking account and plan information may simply click on the Retirement Account Access button to enter the Retirement Plan Service Center, where they will find that all existing features and options that they access on the current site remain available. Once participants log into their accounts from the Service Center, their dashboard and other account screens are unchanged. Attached is an updated “Navigating Through Web Access” brochure that you may distribute to your plan participants that reflects the updates.
