Manning & Napier Benefits

An Integrated Approach to Benefits is your best path forward

Mariners understand that some of the trickiest waters to navigate are located where two strong currents converge. Both employers and employees find themselves attempting to navigate the waters where the strong currents of retirement planning and health care planning meet. It is no secret that health care costs have been rising dramatically over the last ten to twenty years. Unfortunately, the strong currents on the retirement savings front have many employees feeling like they are paddling upstream. The decline in the use of defined benefit plans, fears about the future of Social Security, the two severe bear markets since 2000, low interest rates for savers, and a weak economic environment have resulted in many employees falling well short of the level of savings needed to secure a dignified retirement. Increasingly, it is becoming clear that health and wealth are converging. Once employers and employees recognize this relationship, they can begin to proactively take steps to successfully navigate this potentially turbulent convergence of health care and retirement costs.
