2016 Retirement and Savings Survey Results

In September, MO Deferred Comp conducted three Retirement and Savings surveys targeting active employees age 35 and under, active employees over age 35, and terminated employees (retirees) over age 55. With nearly 8,000 responses (that’s a 12% response rate), the feedback received has proven to be extremely insightful and will help the plan better understand participants’ needs and ultimately improve education efforts. Thank you to everyone who participated in this year’s surveys.
