The March 2015 edition of Your Trusted Source features the following topics:

  • Improving participant education and retirement readiness has been a goal of the industry and on the to-do lists of lawmakers for years. With employer-sponsored defined contribution plans replacing pension and social security benefits as the primary retirement savings vehicle for many American workers, participants are in control of saving for their future. Many participants, however, do not feel they have the tools and information needed for success.
  • If asked about the likelihood of a Social Security check in retirement, many Americans under the age of 50 would reply with a lack of hope. Millennials and Gen X’ers are buzzing about the demise of Social Security benefits before their golden years, but professionals are advising not to write off this benefit just yet.
  • Various studies have shown that automatic enrollment increases plan participation dramatically with very few participants choosing to opt out, but its effect on the plan overall is often overlooked. We have a comprehensive view of this popular feature.

Check out the March Your Trusted Source for these topics and more.
