Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI)

New Edition of EBRI's
Fundamentals of Employee Benefit Programs
Available in January 2009

WASHINIGTON, DC—The all-new Sixth Edition of EBRI's essential
reference book, Fundamentals of Employee Benefit Programs, is currently
being printed and will be available for purchase in January 2009.

Fundamentals is widely used by benefits professionals as a training resource,
in colleges as a textbook, and by journalists as a valuable reference. It has
been published since 1983 by the nonpartisan Employee Benefit Research
Institute (EBRI), which focuses on health, retirement, and economic security
issues. EBRI, based in Washington, DC, is a nonadvocacy research institute
that does not take policy positions and does not lobby.

The new Sixth Edition of Fundamentals marks the first complete update of
the book since 1997. The new print version of the nearly 600-page book is
priced at $19.95 (EBRI members get a 55 percent discount) plus shipping, or
roughly what the book would cost an individual to print an unbound copy at
home without a cover. Early next year, the full text of the book will be posted
on EBRI's Web site
