ATLANTA, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- SunTrust Banks, Inc. (NYSE: STI) has added new retirement income projection tools to its institutional 401(k) offerings that enhance the ability for employees of SunTrust business clients to make more informed decisions around retirement planning.

"Adding these new tools to our offerings is the latest demonstration of our ongoing commitment to provide clients and their employees with the advice and products that will help them achieve their goals."
