Lincoln Financial's Retirement Plan Services Business Teams With Drinker Biddle To Highlight For Plan Sponsors The Value Of In-plan Guarantees

RADNOR, Pa., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lincoln Financial Group's (NYSE:LNC) Retirement Plan Services business has engaged the Retirement Income Team of law firm Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP to create resources designed to help plan sponsors better understand and assess the value in-plan guarantees can add to employer-sponsored retirement plan programs. 

Fred Reish, a partner at Drinker Biddle and well-known thought leader in the retirement industry, will direct efforts with Lincoln to highlight for plan sponsors the critical role in-plan guarantees can play in addressing a growing need in the industry: helping to make sure people have enough income throughout their retirement years. Lincoln and Drinker Biddle will also work together to provide plan sponsors with a better understanding of the fiduciary responsibilities associated with evaluating in-plan guarantee products and adding them to a plan's line-up.

"As participant savings goals shift to strategies that will take them to and through retirement, plan sponsors are looking for ways to address this need," said Chuck Cornelio, president, Retirement Plan Services, Lincoln Financial Group.  "Some of the plan features becoming more prevalent include guaranteed withdrawal benefits, lifetime income options and principal protection strategies within plans.  We're confident that working with Drinker Biddle will strengthen our offering and help plan sponsors better navigate their fiduciary responsibilities in choosing an in-plan guarantee to help create better retirement outcomes for participants."

Drinker Biddle's Retirement Income Team was formed to provide financial services companies with guidance on retirement income solutions.  The team brings together lawyers and professionals across multiple disciplines of the firm including employee benefits, investment management, securities, insurance, income taxation and government relations.  With such broad expertise, the team is positioned to counsel clients on all aspects of retirement income solutions, including in-plan guarantees.
