PORTLAND, Ore. -- Standard Insurance Company, a subsidiary of StanCorp Financial Group, Inc. has launched 401(k) on the Brain, a new financial educational series for participants in The Standard's retirement plans. 401(k) on the Brain was developed by The Standard to provide in-depth retirement planning education for participants. It uses everyday language and a humorous, interactive approach to address a wide range of retirement, investing and financial planning topics.

"Our goal was to develop high-quality educational material that is entertaining and fun to work with," said Chris Dugan, director of marketing for The Standard's Retirement Plans Division. "Participants want information that they can relate to, and 401(k) on the Brain gives them that."

Each educational module includes brochures and worksheets for participants, as well as a PowerPoint presentation. Modules currently available include Basics of the Financial Markets, Investing with Confidence, Building a Savings Plan and Saving Enough: Making Retirement Dreams Real. The Standard will continue to add to this series in 2004 by designing modules for specific demographics within participant groups, including women and people nearing retirement age. The Standard has provided retirement plan services for more than 65 years. Services are available through 20 offices across the country. Products are available on a full service or recordkeeping-only basis.
