Fidelity is only Purdue-endorsed organization for education, guidance during transition to new retirement plan

October 5, 2010

As the sole recordkeeper for the enhanced Purdue retirement program, which goes into effect in January, Fidelity is the only organization that Purdue has contracted with to provide retirement education and guidance during this period of transition to the new program.

Although other investment organizations may be advertising their services during this time, Fidelity is the only one endorsed by Purdue. Both during the transition and after the plan becomes effective in January, Fidelity is Purdue’s official provider of education, guidance and assistance related to retirement plan investments and decisions.
