Thank you very much for your assistance in securing annuities for our retirees who opted not to take the lump-sum option. This is an area in which we at IPS have little or no experience. The professional guidance provided was a great relief to Integrated Power Services. I took comfort in the direct provided, the various options provided (spoken and written in understandable terms), and with the advantages and disadvantages of each provider. I also appreciate the timeliness of responses to our many questions. From start to finish it was a great comfort to know as a broker Dietrich was looking out for the best interests of IPS and our pensioners.
Thank you again for your professionalism, support, and direction. Your expertise and knowledge was a blessing to all of us going through the unknown waters of terminating our defined benefit plan and providing annuities for our pensioners.
