This chapter is from the book


The impact of announcing DB freezes and closures on the stock price of the sponsoring company was studied and documented in the article by Milevsky and Song (2010). For a more extensive discussion of some of the concerns or possible problems with 401(k) plans, see Munnell and Sunden (2003). For additional statistics on the extent of a possible retirement income crisis, see Salsbury (2006), and for a more extensive discussion of the public policy implications of entitlement programs, see Kotlikoff and Burns (2004). Also, the edited books by Aaron (1999) and Clark, et al. (2004) contain some very interesting articles and studies on broader aspects of retirement income planning. Lowenstein (2005) has written an excellent article on the demise of DB pensions from a historical and current-events perspective. The collection of articles in Mitchell and Smetters (2003) provides a more academic perspective on the topic. The Towers Watson June 2010 newsletter includes an interesting discussion of retirement plan trends for Fortune 100 Companies.
