The MetLife Study of Employee Benefits Trends
Findings from the 2004 National Survey of Employers and Employees
MetLife Retirement & Savings
Nov 2004 United States Occupations/Industry Sectors, Death Benefits
The results of this study demonstrate a number of significant trends in the USA. While employees are very concerned about big issues such as income protection (71%), healthcare (59%) and outliving their retirement savings (49%), they value immediate-term benefits (eg, paid vacation days) significantly more than protection products, such as disability insurance and life insurance. On the retirement savings front, almost one-third (28%) of employees either haven’t started saving for retirement or have no retirement savings goals.

2003 Employee Benefits Trend Study
Views on employee benefits
MetLife Retirement & Savings
Dec 2003 United States Scheme Issues & Trends
This research reveals that less than one third (32%) of today’s workers are satisfied with the benefits provided by their employer, a decrease of nine percentage points from one year ago. Among men, benefits satisfaction drops to 29%, versus 41% one year earlier and, among women, it drops to 34% this year from 41% in 2002. This trend is noteworthy given that workers’ satisfaction with their benefits can greatly impact their attitudes toward their employer.

Retirement Income IQ Test
Pre-retirees’ knowledge of retirement income issues
MetLife Retirement & Savings
Jun 2003 United States Pensioners & Retirement
According to this research, consumers are seriously underestimating their own longevity and how much money they will need in retirement. They also do not consider these factors a significant financial risk in terms of planning for retirement. The test results suggest widespread misconceptions among Americans about how much time they will spend in retirement and how much income they will actually need once they stop working.
