Survey: Do DC Plans Need to be Redesigned?

January 21, 2016

DC plan sponsor survey results point to a general lack of confidence around the long-term success of DC plans

Part 1: The Effectiveness of the Current DC Plan

How does your plan stack up?

In our most comprehensive defined contribution survey conducted to date, plan sponsors weigh in on the state of their DC plans. The results of the survey, which were featured in USA Today, point to a general lack of confidence around the long-term success of DC plans within their current design. What is the future landscape and how do your peers respond to the pain points that come with managing a DC plan? These results provide a cumulative look at:

  • Three critical points that could lead to a potential crisis and how to potentially prevent it
  • The continuing shift from DB to DC as the primary retirement vehicle
82% of plan sponsors offering DB plans said that their DC participants do not have access to the same investment money managers used in the DB plan.
  • The current make up of DC plans and the priorities for making investments decisions
  • Perspectives to address key questions and concerns around potential changes to DC plan design
