WAICU Retirement Readiness Plan (WAICU MEP)

The WAICU Retirement Readiness Plan (WRRP) was established by WAICU members in 2018. WAICU institutions can offer employees better retirement options and reduce institutional risk associated with sponsoring their own plans. By merging into the Collaboration, WAICU institutions access higher quality services, lower fees, and administrative support typically only available to much larger plans.
