National Compensation Survey: Health and Retirement Plan Provisions in Private Industry in the United States, 2009 [16 July 2010]
[full-text, 135 pages]
This bulletin presents
estimates of the detailed provisions of employer-provided health and retirement plans in private industry in
2009. Under the NCS program, information on the incidence and provision of benefits is published in stages.
An earlier bulletin provided 2009 NCS data on civilian, State and local government, and private industry
workers, on the incidence of (access to and participation in) selected benefits and detailed provisions of paid
holidays, life insurance plans, and some other benefit plans, as well as on employer and employee shares of
contributions to medical care premiums and their average amounts. Similar data for civilian, private industry,
and State and local government workers for March 2010 will be issued later this year.
This bulletin of detailed health and retirement provisions will begin including basic health, defined benefit, and
defined contribution tables each year. In addition, each year additional tables for a specific benefit will also be
included. For example, this year additional defined contribution retirement tables in private industry are
included. Next year, additional defined benefit retirement tables in private industry will be included in the
bulletin. Periodically, state and local government benefits are scheduled to be studied.
