The Principal Makes Next Dentist Visit Mobile Friendly

Stocks in this article: PFG

With the enhanced mobile application from the Principal Financial Group ® , dental insurance members will no longer need a dental ID card in their wallet. Employees who participate in dental coverage offered through The Principal ® , can now access all of the information on their current card and more on their mobile device. The Principal Mobile SM app is free, secure and easy to use.

“We want to make it faster and easier for our customers to access important information on the go,” said Theresa McConeghey, assistant vice president of dental insurance for The Principal. “Individuals who have primarily used the app to access retirement plan information can now view dental insurance benefits and tools in the same place.”

Dental coverage members can email or fax their ID card directly to their dentist or pull it up themselves to view coverage information. Members can easily look up a network dentist in their local area, complete with a map and driving directions, through the network dentist directory feature. Dental benefits and processed claims area also available for view through the app.

Principal Mobile can be downloaded from the Apple ® App Store SM or Google Play ® today 1

Members who have already downloaded the Principal app will receive an automatic notification to update to the newest version.

The Principal mobile application was first released in July 2011 to allow retirement plan participants to track savings progress and view account information. For more information on the initial launch of the app, visit: http://www.principal.com/about/news/2011/ris-principal-mobile-retirement072711.htm

“We will continue to simplify the member experience by regularly updating the available features to make it easier to access group benefits and plan for retirement,” noted McConeghey.
