DC Survey Provider Awards
DC Survey Provider Awards
PLANSPONSOR’s annual Defined Contribution (DC) Survey provides important client satisfaction information, as it measures and evaluates 401(k) and other DC providers according to feedback from our own plan sponsor clients. The three highest-scoring providers in each of 22 major service categories earned Best in Class awards, as did those providers with an net satisfaction rate above the asset group’s benchmark score (listed in each chart). “Service Commendations” were given to recordkeepers who did not receive Best in Class honors but had 90% of clients either “completely” or “mostly” satisfied with a particular service offering to receive a Service Commendation.Read more >
