Workers Support & Value Retirement Benefits
Survey research consistently shows that solid majorities of U.S. households have favorable impressions of defined contribution (DC) plan accounts, such as 401(k) plans.
Most households’ impressions are shaped by the ability of these accounts to accumulate significant savings, by the performance of retirement plan account investments, and by personal experience with such plans. DC account–owning households also appreciate the choice in, and control of, the investments provided by their retirement plan accounts.
