First 403(b) Plan Benchmarking Survey Released
First 403(b) Plan Benchmarking Survey Released
Profit Sharing/401k Council of America (PSCA)
18 Dec 2008 United States Scheme Issues & Trends, Countries - US

The first 403(b) benchmarking survey from the Profit Sharing/401k Council of America (PSCA) aims to shed light on employee benefits such as 403(b) retirement plans which play a key role in the not-for-profit world. Many not-for-profit organisations rely heavily on 403(b) plans to compete for the best employees. Until now, however, there has been very little data available to help these groups benchmark their plans against other not-for-profits.
