The team at LAGERS is proud to announce that in 2016 we added 12 new employers! This reflects our incredible growth over the past few years, as well as our constant commitment to our organization’s vision, which is embodied in the phrase “A Secure Retirement for All.”
We strive to live out this vision statement every day when we come to work and will continue our efforts to bring retirement security to existing and new employers and members in 2017. We have a lot of exciting new ways we plan to accomplish this in the future, so keep watching our blog and following us on social media to keep up with us in the New Year.
We wanted to give you a few examples as to why these new employers decided that LAGERS was the right choice for them. It comes down to our commitment to help our employers recruit and retain top talent while giving them the opportunity to exit the workforce with dignity when that time comes.
“We wanted a better retirement plan for our employees; one that offered more financial security for them. Providing a great retirement plan like LAGERS should improve the district’s employee recruitment and retention goals, and possibly provide some added financial comfort.” Bill Florea, Director of Operations, Nodaway County Ambulance District.
“Our board wanted to provide a better retirement for all our employees. LAGERS will be a great addition for the benefit package of our current and new employees in the future.” Vickie Mitschele, Office Manager, Laclede County PWSD #3.
"We had recently conducted a study to audit our current retirement system, and found that a defined benefit plan would have a greater return on investment than the defined contribution plan that we had. That makes LAGERS a better retirement solution for us, and will give our employees a better outlook on their retirement future. We’re looking forward to the switch!” Greg Vogel , Fire Chief, West Overland EMS & Fire Protection District.
We’re thankful to them that they are joining our family, and we can’t wait to make great things happen for their employees, our new members. Here’s to a great start to 2017 for all of us!
