DC Plan Sponsor Deliberations and Decisions

Understand Critical Issues DC Plan Sponsors Face

The fiduciary responsibility associated with defined contribution (DC) plans cannot be overstated, as the decisions plan sponsors make directly affect the retirement security of their employees. And, as we have seen in recent years, managing employee retirement assets has come under ever-increasing scrutiny due to a number of factors including Department of Labor (DOL) regulations, revisions to the definition of a fiduciary, and a number of high profile lawsuits aimed at plan sponsors and retirement services providers.

American Century has experience with a wide array of clients with varying plan structures, sizes, and design features. We have summarized several key deliberations and practices that we see our clients contending with in the workplace. We believe these may be of interest to you as you contemplate your own retirement plan features and other broad considerations, and we welcome the opportunity to further discuss in more detail.
