UNIFI Companies Retirement Plans Adopts Comprehensive Participant Education Program

ALBANY, N.Y. April 20, 2006 - UNIFI Companies Retirement Plans, an affiliation of Ameritas Retirement Plans and Union Central Retirement and Investment Services, has adopted a comprehensive communications program that both Ameritas and Union Central expect will make them industry leaders in participant education.

UNIFI Companies Retirement Plans has selected Newkirk Products, Inc., of Albany, NY, to implement its education program. "We’re delighted to be working with UNIFI Companies Retirement Plans on this project," said Newkirk President Pete Newkirk. "We’ll be using our recently launched NewkirkOne communication platform to create and distribute participant and plan-level communications. Conversion communications, statements with personal messages, and targeted participant communications will be created from a single Internet-based solution. While we have a number of NewkirkOne users already, UNIFI is the first to implement such a complete program."

"Superior customer service is the foundation of any successful business," said Drew Powers, vice-president - retirement plans at UNIFI Companies. "In the retirement plans services business, we know that many plan participants are confused by their retirement planning options and uncertain about investing. They need help, and we hope to provide it."

The new program will enable Ameritas and Union Central to profile plan participants and identify appropriate retirement plan pathways. The targeted communications will then educate plan participants regarding these defined pathways. Personal illustrations in printed materials and on the Internet will help focus the message.

"We selected Newkirk because of their experience and breadth of products and services," said Powers. "They had everything we were looking for.  We also view Newkirk as an innovator. The fit seemed natural."
