We bring a broad knowledge of best practices to our benefits communications strategy, and ensure that the complexity, tone and presentation is appropriate for the audience. Our professionals regularly design and write summary plan descriptions (SPDs) that comprehensively and accurately describe the benefits and coverage under retirement plans. Writing and updating SPDs can be labor intensive, due to the mixture of plan specifications and the legally required language. Trest’s professionals include bilingual communication specialists with years of experience preparing employee benefit plan communications. Our team is uniquely qualified to serve as an organization’s resource in preparing these documents due to the breadth of our technical employee benefits expertise and communications experience, providing technical accuracy with clear, easy-to-understand writing.
