News Release

iA Financial Group (Industrial Alliance Insurance and Financial Services Inc.) is pleased to announce that members of its group retirement plans can now designate or modify beneficiaries online when they enrol in their plan or, once enrolled, via its secure My Client Space website. 

This new paperless procedure will be simpler, quicker and more efficient for plan members. It also offers the following benefits: 
  • Modern functionality allowing plan members to take action right away 
  • User-friendly, easy-to-access interface 
  • Instant application of changes made by members, which become effective immediately and without delay
This new feature was developed in accordance with retirement plan rules and all applicable provincial legislation. It is therefore available across Canada, except in the province of Manitoba.

“We are very proud we have simplified the process of designating and updating beneficiaries. This is a great addition to our already strong offering of online services and to our client experience. It is perfectly in line with our commitment to offering high-performing, intelligent solutions to our clients and partners,” stated Renée Laflamme, Executive Vice-President, Group Benefits and Retirement Solutions.

This enhancement to its online services once again demonstrates the desire of iA Financial Group to build long-term relationships with its clients, founded upon simplicity and innovation.
