ProCash Plus® : A Retirement Income Management Tool for Your Clients’ Brokerage Accounts

Now there is an easy way to help your retired clients experience stress-free management of their retirement income. The comprehensive ProCash Plus® asset management account allows clients the ability to invest in securities, deposit money from various sources of income, write checks, and pay bills—all from a single, convenient account.

Pool income from retirement accounts
You may have seen your clients struggle to keep track of various sources of retirement income, such as required minimum distributions (RMDs) from individual retirement accounts (IRAs) and employer-sponsored plans, pension income, income from annuities, and Social Security payments. You can help your clients overcome this challenge by encouraging them to simplify their dayto- day money management by consolidating assets that may be held at separate institutions in a Platinum, Gold, or Silver ProCash Plus account.

“…Valuable ProCash Plus features work together to help you give your retired clients more control over their finances.”

More assets means a deeper relationship between you and your clients
Managing a higher percentage of your clients’ net worth increases the likelihood that you will be their primary service provider—the professional they trust to handle their investments and help them plan for living in their retirement years. ProCash Plus can be a valuable tool in strengthening client relationships. Your clients will appreciate the ease and convenience of keeping track of their retirement income through a ProCash Plus account. They will also benefit from:

  • Direct Deposit of their retirement income, tax refunds, and other sources of income—all deposited into one convenient account

  • Dividend reinvestment that puts full and fractional same-security share earnings immediately to work2
