Participant Survey

Methodology

PLANSPONSOR partnered with Research Now to conduct the fourth annual PLANSPONSOR Participant Survey. The online questionnaire, which explored respondent opinions and behaviors regarding employer-sponsored retirement plans and other financial matters, was completed between July 7 and 14 by 1,054 U.S.-based employees, ages 23 and older. The resulting sample includes a mix of individuals with and without access to a defined contribution (DC) plan and was balanced to capture meaningful totals across key demographic attributes—i.e., gender, income, education, etc. The margin of error of the aggregate results is estimated to be +/– 4%.
