DCIIA and P&I to honor innovative defined contribution plans on October 27...look for the winners to be announced

The Defined Contribution Institutional Investment Association (DCIIA) and Pensions and Investments are co-sponsoring this award for innovation by defined contribution plans and their executives.

We are excited to once again be able to recognize those ahead of the herd, those making new and unusual changes designed to improve participants' retirement income security.

Innovator Awards nominations were accepted earlier in the year and entries were judged over the summer by a panel composed of plan executives and leading consultants.  

We're looking forward to sharing insights from the winners of the third annual awards at Pensions & Investments' 2014 West Coast Defined Contribution Conference, to be held October 26-29 in San Diego. The Innovators Award luncheon will be held on October 27. DCIIA and P&I will also be co-hosting a dessert reception gathering later that evening to honor the 2014 Innovator Award and Award of Excellence recipients.

Paula Sanford, Ph.D., of the Carl Vinson Institute of Government at the University of Georgia is a local government finance specialist whose latest research explores how some states – Ohio, Virginia, Missouri - have successfully implemented automatic features within their supplemental defined contribution plans despite numerous challenges. Read Paula’s blog post and research.

Why Focus On Automatic Features – one of DCIIA’s core beliefs is that well-designed default programs can improve retirement outcomes: Automatic enrollment and automatic contribution escalation of participant contribution levels, when combined with default investment options that take advantage of institutional asset management techniques, help increase savings levels and promote better retirement outcomes.
