What you need to know!
GE Retirement Savings Plan is a defined contribution plan with a profit-sharing component, 401k feature, and ESOP component. This plan has a BrightScope Rating of 83
One of the key concerns is that the plan only has 16 investment options which is common for most 401k type plans.
Most 401k, Profit Sharing or ESOP plans do not have active management so there really is no one guiding the plan investments. What this means is that like most traditional investment companies, in the event of an economic downturn there is no method for automatically moving your portfolio to a lower risk profile.
With the WealthSentry system we participate in, accounts are automatically re-balanced to lower risk portfolios in the event of a severe economic downturn. Learn more in our guide, 6 Critical Steps You Must Take Now.
