Highlights

Webinar Explores Employer Reactions to State Mandates

Increasingly, state and even local governments are exploring whether to require that employers offer retirement savings plans.  Some have moved beyond exploration into mandates. The goal of these efforts is to increase the number of workers who are able to save through their paychecks.  But some employers who currently do offer workplace savings plans would consider a transition from their current plan to a state program.

The Webinar explores this reaction and digs into what other factors come into play.  Research findings can help retirement plans providers and advisors address plan sponsor perceptions, and misperceptions about the value of their DC programs, by helping them craft strategy, messaging and education.
