New Data Available on State DC Plans

August 4, 2008 ( - The Center for State and Local Government Excellence announced that for the first time detailed defined contribution plan data is available for the 20 plans operated by state governments.

The data provided by the Center includes 2006 information on participation, contribution rates, investment allocation, total assets, and distribution options, among other things. The Center said the data will be updated annually and filled in for previous years.

The Center said it will release information on municipal pension plans later this year.
