Dmitry Yarushkin Advises on Design and Analysis of National 403(b) Plan Design Survey

November 4, 2020

For the first time, organizations that provide 403(b) plans reported that retirement planning, rather than increasing participation, is their top focus for employee education, according to the 12th annual 403(b) Plan Survey from the Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA). PSCA’s 2020 403(b) plan survey of nearly 400 non-profit organizations across the U.S. is the only independent 403(b) research report that delivers actionable data on trends among plan sponsors in the non-profit sector and range in size and industry from small community-based organizations to large hospital and university systems. More information can be found here.

Dmitry Yarushkin, Professor of Practice in the Business Department, is working on the next research project with PSCA. He is helping design a survey around specific actions 403(b) plan sponsors and their employees took in response to unprecedented hardships from the health and economic impacts of COVID-19. The report is expected to be published next year.
