“Prudential Retirement is pleased MGM Resorts selected us to recordkeep its 401(k) savings plan and we look forward to serving MGM Resorts’ plan participants,” said George Castineiras, senior vice president, Total Retirement Solutions, Prudential Retirement.

“We selected Prudential Retirement as our plan’s recordkeeper because of Prudential’s demonstrated results that drive successful participant outcomes, its low expenses, strong performance and excellent communications program,” said MGM Resorts Executive Director of Benefits, Cindy Moehring.
