Neighborly® Selects Human Interest as 401(k) Preferred Vendor

As a preferred 401(k) vendor to the world’s largest home services company’s franchise owners, Human Interest will help employees at more than 4,400 U.S. franchise locations save for their retirement

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fast-growing 401(k) provider Human Interest has been selected by Neighborly®, the world's largest home services company, to provide access to retirement savings plans to thousands of home services professionals in the Neighborly franchise network. By eliminating transaction fees and simplifying the enrollment process, Human Interest's platform expands retirement savings access to traditionally underserved workers. Neighborly franchises that will gain access to retirement benefits through this program include Molly Maid®, Mr. Electric®, Mosquito Joe®, Glass Doctor®, and others.

As a preferred vendor, Human Interest 401(k) plans will be available to more than 4,400 U.S. franchise locations. The Human Interest platform is designed specifically to meet the needs of small business owners like franchisees. Benefits include an affordable plan with competitive pricing and zero transaction fees; easier setup and administration; and integrating with 300+ payroll providers.1

"Human Interest makes it easy for Neighborly franchise owners to save for their future and allows owners to stand out as an employer of choice in their community by offering competitive retirement benefits to their employees,” said Luke Stanton, president of ProTradeNet®, a preferred vendor network with exclusive rebates and discounts to Neighborly brand franchise owners.

Some Neighborly franchises have already rolled out Human Interest 401(k) plans to their employees. At one franchise for Rainbow Restoration™, a global franchise providing residential and commercial restoration and cleaning services, all employees have enrolled.

“In today’s world it is difficult to find employees,” said Dawn Purbaugh, owner of Rainbow Restoration of Bothell, Wash. “Adding a 401(k) to our benefits package will help hire and retain employees who want to grow with our company and allow them to feel secure and valued. I was worried about my own future, too. It’s difficult to run a business and save for retirement. Implementing a 401(k) gives me peace of mind that I am helping create a solid financial future for myself and our employees.”

Jeff Schneble, CEO at Human Interest, believes extending retirement savings to franchises is an important step to one day closing the retirement savings gap. “Neighborly franchise employees are the people who quite literally build and maintain our communities and neighborhoods across the U.S.,” Schneble said. “Workers in service professions haven’t typically had access to employer-sponsored retirement plans. While they’re building our present, we can help them with an efficient way to bolster their futures. By offering affordable 401(k) plans to its entire franchise network, Neighborly is helping change the trajectory of our national retirement crisis.”
