Coming up short : the challenge of 401(k) plans by Alicia Haydock Munnell( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As the baby boom begins to withdraw from the labor force, ensuring a secure retirement income becomes an increasingly important issue. The number of people over age 65 is expected to double by 2030. That trend will continue, accompanied by worries about stock market volatility, corporate malfeasance, a rapidly changing economy, and the viability of Social Security. In Coming Up Short, two experts on retirement policy analyze 401(k) plans, the fastest-growing type of employer-sponsored pensions and a vital source of retirement income for the American middle class." "Alicia Munnell and Annika Sunden chronicle the development of 401(k) plans, now the dominant form of private pensions. In accessible language, they explain how such plans work and discuss their popularity. For employees, these plans are appealing because they have more control over their own retirement funds, and the plans are portable. For employers, the plans are generally less costly than defined benefit plans."--BOOK JACKET

In the wake of the financial crisis and Great Recession, the health of state and local pension plans has emerged as a front burner policy issue.

A few local governments have even filed for bankruptcy, with pensions cited as a major cause. Alicia H. Munnell draws on both her practical experience and her research to provide abroad perspective on the challenge of state a

Competing reform proposals reflect contrasting views about the nature of the Social Security problem and how to solve it.

Public pension funding in practice by Alicia Haydock Munnell( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public pension funding has recently become a front-burner policy issue in the wake of the financial crisis and given the pending retirement of large numbers of baby boomers. This paper examines the current funding of state and local pensions using a sample of 126 plans, estimating an aggregate funded ratio in 2009 of 78 percent. Projections for 2010-2013 suggest that some continued deterioration is likely. Funded status can vary significantly among plans, so the paper explores the influence of four types of factors: funding discipline, plan governance, plan characteristics, and the fiscal situation of the state. Judging the adequacy of funding requires more than just a snapshot of assets and liabilities, so the paper examines how well plans are meeting their Annual Required Contribution and what factors influence whether they make them. The paper also addresses the controversy over what discount rate to use for valuing liabilities, concluding that using a riskless rate of return could help improve funding discipline but would need to be implemented in a manageable way. Finally, the paper assesses whether plans face a near-term liquidity crisis and finds that most have assets on hand to cover benefits over the next 15-20 years. The bottom line is that, like private investors, public plans have been hit hard by the financial crisis and their full recovery is dependent on the rebound of the economy and the stock market
