WINDSOR, Conn., Feb. 8, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA) announced today that its Retirement business will continue serving as the benefit services administrator for Nestlé's U.S. employer-sponsored retirement savings plans — the Nestlé Smart$aving Program.
Nestlé USA is part of Swiss-based Nestlé S.A. The company provides consumers with a diverse portfolio of food and beverage products. Voya's relationship with Nestlé USA began in 2003 and has been extended pursuant to a five-year agreement.

"Voya's innovative solutions and commitment to providing value added services continue to result in high employee satisfaction and engagement with the plan," said Shirley Zabiegala, director of Savings and Retirement for Nestlé USA. "Voya's dedication to helping our workforce become retirement ready is the foundation of our successful partnership, and has led to a participation rate of 92%. We look forward to continuing this relationship as we work together to help our employees achieve their retirement goals."
In support of its commitment to helping all Americans become ready for retirement, Voya will continue to provide Nestlé USA and its employees with industry-leading decision and planning tools, as well as award-winning plan participant communication and financial education programs that inform, engage and encourage positive action. These resources include Voya's newly enhanced participant website, which features the myOrangeMoney® retirement income planning capability. Participants will also have access to in-plan advice through Voya Retirement Advisors. Voya will continue to support portions of Nestlé USA's Stable Value component within the Conservative Income portfolio plan investment option.
