Survey Findings: Despite record high 401(k) balances, most employers believe employees will not be financially prepared for retirement
The results of the Annual 401(k) Benchmarking Survey (sponsored by Deloitte, ISCEBS and IFEBP) reveals employees’ retirement readiness remains a top priority for a majority (78 percent) of 401(k) plan sponsors. However, despite reported 401(k) balances at an all-time high, scarcely 1 out of 10 plan sponsors (12 percent) are confident in their participants’ financial ability to retire. The solution? More education. The findings show a third (32 percent) of plan sponsors are conducting retirement readiness assessments, a 7 percent increase over 2011, and 88 percent believe enhancements to their existing education strategies will help participants pave their road to retirement.
Read the full survey results, including how options like automatic enrollment, 401(k) features and individual counseling have affected these trends. (5/2/13)
