Popular ERISA features inadvertently expose participants to increased levels of investment risk and retirement insecurity. In addition, investment defaults, commonly known as QDIAs, have promoted a one-size-fits-all investment approach. This presentation explores how this situation evolved and the importance of changing this mind-set and trajectory. Next, we explore alternatives available to provide plan participants the support and direction needed to ensure appropriate retirement income planning and investment decision-making. Lastly, we look at the steps plan committees can take to assess and implement these solutions.
