The 401(k) plan is more important today than it’s ever been before. By all indications, a retirement funded by Social Security will soon become a thing of the past, leaving only those who properly prepared in a position to enjoy a secure and stable future.
It’s with that mindset that we approach every aspect of our business here at Slavic. Our participant-investors have entrusted us with a significant portion of their earnings; a portion of their work, and therefore a portion of their livelihood. Our stewardship of that livelihood is something we don’t take lightly, and that’s why words like honesty, transparency, integrity & fairness are spoken regularly within our four walls.
While it’s no secret that our business comes down to dollars and cents, we refuse to treat our clients like just another number. We value each person - regardless of their role or relationship with us - as an individual with unique needs & goals, challenges & dreams.
That’s why when you call our corporate headquarters, you’ll speak to a person - not a machine. That’s why we’ve carefully architected all of our services - from our inviting enrollment process to our friendly and competent customer service team, and everything in between - with the individual investor’s experience in mind.
Here at Slavic, we wholeheartedly believe that our 401(k) plans help create a more stable workforce. A stable workforce makes for a healthy economy, which promotes increased job growth and bolsters our nation’s economy even further.
More jobs equal more families with a bright future. Less reliance on government programs, like Social Security, equal more independence and personal control for those families. We love America, and we love Americans, and the knowledge that executing our business with excellence day in and day out makes American lives better is, in part, what gets each of us out of bed every morning.
