DAK Americas Deploys Synapses Total Benefit Statement for Employees

CHARLOTTE, NC--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - Synapses Inc., a leading provider of personalized 401(k) education, products and services, today announced that Charlotte, North Carolina-based DAK Americas selected the Synapses Total Benefit Statement service to provide all U.S. DAK employees with a comprehensive report detailing all employment benefits.

The new service accompanies the personalized 401(k) education tools and other materials currently being provided to DAK Americas' employees by Corporate Benefit Advisors, Inc. (CBA), DAK Americas' financial advisor and leading provider of employee benefit and corporate retirement plans. DAK Americas, a global supplier of Terephthalic acid (TPA) - Monomers, Polyethylene Terephthalate Resins (PET) and Polyester Staple Fibers (PSF), wished to further enhance proactive efforts in painting a full picture of employee benefits, augmenting its successful retirement education programs and materials already in place.

Serving as a personalized total compensation and benefits report for employees, Synapses' Total Benefit Statement illustrates that a salary only represents a portion of a complete compensation package. The report shows that other benefits can often be just as valuable as a paycheck. Using easy-to-read graphs and lists, the report can include the value of various benefits, including medical and prescription drugs, dental, life insurance, assistance programs, 401(k) matching, paid holidays/vacations, and even social security, unemployment taxes, and taxes saved.

"In an effort to reinforce and strengthen our commitment to top notch retirement education and materials for employees, we found the Synapses Total Benefit Statement offered through CBA to be a uniquely comprehensive look at the full scope of benefits," said N. Eammon G. Simmons, manager of compensation and benefits at DAK Americas LLC. "Not only are materials and service from Synapses stellar, but the data within its report brings powerful information to the hands of employees."

"The Synapses Total Benefits Statement serves as yet another avenue for us to innovatively serve DAK Americas as their employee benefit consultant," said William Byron, AIF, managing partner and consultant at Charlotte, North Carolina-based Corporate Benefit Advisors. "With technology and service unrivaled in the industry, Synapses continues to make its mark and serve the needs of employee benefit clients by offering a total benefits snapshot and a total value statement."

The Total Benefit Statement can play a vital role in illustrating that people are a company's best asset. For a sample Total Benefit Statement, contact or call 704-321-4747.
