Workers are looking to employers for answers
Our research found that a majority of DC plan sponsors appear willing to provide the post-retirement assistance people seek. Employees know and trust their employers, and more are staying in plan beyond their working years. Adding retirement income strategies to the menu gives retirees ongoing professional management at a reasonable cost when they need it most. It also makes the plan more attractive when recruiting and retaining talent.
