How does your retirement program stack up? - 2010 edition [June 2010]

Last updated: 26 May 2010




[full-text, 54 pages]






We are pleased to present the 2010 edition of our annual retirement benchmarking survey report – How does your retirement plan stack up? For the first time, this report is being presented in an interactive electronic flipbook that puts the details – for all the companies in the S&P 1500 – right at your fingertips.


This report provides a comprehensive review of retirement plan benchmark data from a broad range of perspectives and financial effects. It will deepen understanding of the competitive environment of retirement benefits and offer insights on how to manage your programs using the design, contribution and investment policy levers of Mercer’s Integrated Retirement Financial Management framework.


The report includes perspectives and in-depth analysis on the current state of pension programs (pension health and materiality), risk management with regard to benefits earned and the assets backing them (volatility), delivery of future benefits and retirement program life cycles (sustainability), and management assumptions and decisions that drive accounting results.
