From a colleague
1. *What plan changes for improvement are you considering this year? Evaluating current investment menu options
Evaluating target-date fund providers
Increasing participation rates
Implementing plan changes
Evaluating retirement income solutions
2. *Which of the following comes closes to describing the extent to which participants in your 401(k) plan(s) have access to retirement income products? In-plan income annuities or other lifetime income products is the default distribution option in our 401(k) plan
We offer in-plan income annuities as an accumulation option in our 401(k) plan
We offer in-plan income annuities or other lifetime income products as one or more of our 401(k) distribution options at retirement
We offer access to out-of-plan income annuities or other lifetime income products
We do not currently offer our participants income annuities or other lifetime income products through our 401(k) plan; however, we are considering offering them.
We do not currently offer our participants income annuities or other lifetime income products through our 401(k) plan; we have no plans to offer them in the future.
3. *What do you think is the single most important reason that plan sponsors do not offer income annuities and other lifetime income products within their 401(k) plans ? either as an accumulation or distribution option or both? Plan sponsors do not want to take on the fiduciary risk of selecting an annuity provider
Plan sponsors believe providing such options is administratively too complex
Plan sponsors believe providing such options is too costly
Plan sponsors do not think that creating retirement income is an important objective of the 401(k) plan
Participants are not asking for these products
