WASHINGTON, Aug. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- ICMA-RC recently enhanced its mobile app, making it easier for public sector plan participants to conduct transactions and access financial education and tools from their mobile devices.

Using the ICMA-RC mobile app, a participant can:

  • enroll in their retirement plan directly from a mobile device (if the plan offers online enrollment);
  • view their account balance, year-to-date account activity, retirement income projection and personalized fund performance;
  • update personal information such as email address and mobile phone number, based on plan guidelines;
  • use a rebalance option, which allows participants to transfer 100 percent of their account balance to one or more of the funds available in their plan; and
  • enjoy easier navigation as well as market commentary, educational videos, and a retirement savings calculator.

"ICMA-RC is pleased to lead the way in offering public sector employees the ability to seamlessly conduct their retirement transactions from a mobile device," said Bob Schultze, ICMA-RC President and CEO. "Mobile technology is convenient and particularly well-suited to public sector employees who are on the move serving our communities. Now they can check their accounts anytime, anywhere."

The ICMA-RC mobile app is available for download on the iTunes App StoreSM and Google PlayTM.
