Guides for defined benefit (DB) plans
Pension plans and the corporations that sponsor them are stretched as never before. Some of the largest plan sponsors–GE, Lockheed Martin, GM, Ford, and Verizon Communications–have transferred pension risk out of their plans. The penalty for getting a plan's investment strategy wrong can be terminal, proven by recent bankruptcy filings citing a pension fund as the primary cause. While the challenge is great, practical solutions do exist.
Thousands of U.S. corporations have already frozen pension benefit accruals as an early step on the path towards eventual plan termination. Many others are considering such a step. Our Frozen Plan Handbook, which is designed as a simple, illustrative guide for those who have already frozen–or are considering freezing–their pension plans may help in your decision-making.

This handbook is geared for DC investment committees, CFOs, and HR employee benefits professionals. It can help you better understand today's DC market and prevailing best practices as you build and manage a plan to help participants meet their retirement income needs while fulfilling your fiduciary obligations.
