HEROPLUS℠ Program Advantage
The HEROPLUS℠ Program brings together a suite of services from several different providers into a single offering to help reduce costs and provide flexibility for both plan sponsors and participants. The program can be customized at the local level to meet the specific needs of the plan sponsor, without having to amend the plan document.
The HEROPLUS℠ Program provides the plan document and a comprehensive service model that centers on your needs, giving you ongoing access to a team of service providers who can assist you with all aspects of your plan.
