WINDSOR, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Voya Financial, Inc.

Voya serves as the sole recordkeeping service provider for the CalPERS Supplemental Income 457 Plan.
Since 1995, CalPERS has provided a deferred compensation plan to public agency and school employers and their employees in California.

More than 800 public agencies and schools across California participate. As of May 31, 2020, the CalPERS 457 Plan had over 32,000 eligible participants representing approximately $1.7 billion in assets under administration.
“For more than two decades, we have been offering a deferred compensation program to public agency and school employers and their employees. Our commitment remains the same — to provide a low-cost program with quality customer service to employers and CalPERS 457 Plan participants,” said Ken Hall, program manager, CalPERS Supplemental Income Plans. “Through our collaboration with Voya Financial, over 80 public agencies in California have adopted the CalPERS 457 Plan during the past four years — helping more hardworking Californians prepare for a secure financial future.”
As part of its commitment to advancing the retirement readiness of all Americans, Voya will provide CalPERS 457 Plan participants with localized support and access to industry-leading educational tools and resources. These include Voya’s myOrangeMoney® retirement-income-estimating capabilities and participant website experience, as well as communication and education programs designed to engage and motivate employees to save and achieve their financial wellness needs.
“Voya has supported CalPERS since the initial creation of their Supplemental Income 457 Plan, and we have adapted our services as their program has grown and evolved. We’re proud CalPERS continues to place their trust and confidence in Voya to help its thousands of participants in more than 800 public agencies and schools across California plan for a secure retirement,” said Heather Lavallee, president of Tax-Exempt Markets for Voya’s Retirement business. “As a top-two provider of retirement plans in the government market based on assets,1 Voya has a long history of supporting some of the largest government retirement systems in the U.S. We look forward to continuing to provide the support and guidance CalPERS 457 Plan participants need to plan, invest and protect their savings so they can retire better.”
