We offer a full range of administrative and financial services including the following:

Nonqualified Plans
MullinTBG, a part of The Prudential Insurance Company of America, a wholly owned subsidiary of Prudential Financial, Inc, offers a breadth of nonqualified resources and expertise for plan sponsors. We offer consulting services for clients who want customized, cost-effective and flexible executive benefit plan design.

Personal Retirement Services
Participants can access our dedicated Personal Retirement Services Center, available to all participants (active or terminated) that have questions or concerns about their distribution options, including facilitating direct rollovers to another plan or Individual Retirement Account (IRA).

When a participant contacts the Personal Retirement Services Center, a specialist will review the specific distribution options available within their program. In addition, the specialist will review the advantages and disadvantages of each option. The specialist, at the participant’s request, is able to explain distribution options available in the marketplace along with a wide array of Prudential products. They will also answer basic tax and planning questions. Additionally, participants have access to a group of Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) registered specialists that can offer in-depth information about Prudential products.

We also maintain Roth IRA products outside of our employer-sponsored retirement plan business that can accept rollovers from defined contribution plans.

Structured and Stable Value Products
We offer the services of our Structured and Stable Value Products Unit that services large institutional investors in qualified and nonqualified markets by developing, marketing and servicing products with interest and/or annuity guarantees. Products include funding agreements, stable value products and guaranteed interest contracts (GICs). These products offer downside protection and may offer upside potential through either active or passive investment strategies.

Brokerage Windows
Prudential Retirement offers two different (mutually exclusive) types of brokerage products. A streamlined fully integrated offering with a single broker dealer (referred to as “SDB”) that supports both online and rep assisted trading. And, a more robust, fully integrated offering (referred to as “IDA”) that allows each participant to utilize an advisor/broker of their choice, while maintaining a
centralized custodian.

Self-directed Brokerage (“SDB”)
We offer our self-directed brokerage account option that provides participants more investment choice and greater control over the types of investments in their retirement accounts. Participants can select the manner in which they perform trades within the account—either by the participant website or by calling the self-directed brokerage Service Center, where dedicated and specially trained, registered representatives can execute participant-directed trade requests.

Individually-Directed Account (“IDA”)
We offer a flexible Individually-Directed Account (IDA) program. Our program allows participants to choose their own broker(s) or investment advisor(s) and features “seamless” processing and settling of all IDA trades. Our flexible, multi-broker, integrated processing is a distinct advantage to participants and plan sponsors. Our central custodian of all IDA assets settles all trades, compiles all activity and issues one consolidated quarterly statement for each IDA.

Trustee Services
Prudential Bank & Trust, FSB (PB&T) will provide corporate-directed (i.e., “non-discretionary”) trust services to retirement plans of Prudential Retirement’s clients. When PB&T acts as a corporate trustee for a particular defined benefit plan, defined contribution plan or nonqualified deferred compensation plan, it will hold title to those plan assets that PB&T deems administratively feasible. The trust agreement with the client will carefully delineate PB&T’s duties. PB&T, through its agent, Prudential Investment Management Services LLC, will act as a custodian for publicly traded employer stock and other investments that PB&T deems administratively feasible
