to offer powerful tools and personalized recommendations to help participants invest for retirement. Savings plan participants at Northrop Grumman now have access to personalized, objective retirement planning services that will help answer these questions and more.

Help from Financial Engines - Advisory Services
In addition to the Retirement Evaluation, Financial Engines will offer two types of advisory services*.
|Unlike most online investment tools, Online Advice doesn't use one-size-fits-all models or provide generic, off-the-shelf advice.
Financial Engines has created sophisticated modeling and forecasting technology to estimate what's happening in the economy, forecast returns, and analyze tens of thousands of investments.
With a few clicks you can:
- Build a personalized plan for investing, savings and retirement income.
- Estimate forecasts with advance simulation tools.
- Get specific fund recommendations so you can decide which funds to invest in and how much to invest in each.
- Choose to put into action any advice that you get.
There is no additional fee. Online Advice is already paid for by the savings plan as a plan expense.
To get started, log in to My Benefits Access and look for 'Get Advice' or 'Investment Advice' links.
|If you’re more of a “hands-off” investor, and want an expert to handle everything for you, you may want to consider enrolling in Professional Management*.
