PLANSPONSOR Weekend Newsdash
Week ending May 4th, 2018
Hello, PLANSPONSOR readers. A couple of studies found that access to retirement planning, as well as saving adequately, can lead to better retirement income. Confidence is also key, and sources offer suggestions about how plan sponsors can improve employees’ retirement confidence. For 403(b) plans, a speaker at the Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA) 71st Annual National Conference discussed how a new plan design model can provide efficiencies and benefits. And, MassMutual announced new reporting to help defined benefit (DB) plan sponsors in the administration of their plans. Have a great weekend!
