PSCA "Siggys" Shine Spotlight on Defined Contribution Plan Education Stars

Issued by: PSCA [Plan Sponsor Council of America]

Date: May 14, 2020

Exemplary retirement plan education campaigns honored in 11 categories.

Arlington, VA, (May 14, 2020) – The Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA), part of the American Retirement Association (ARA), today announced the winners of its 2020 Signature Awards competition. PSCA is the leading association of defined contribution plan sponsors in the U.S.

PSCA’s Signature Awards recognize exemplary retirement plan education and communications. While education has long been an essential element in helping American workers save for retirement, those programs are even more critical today as participants consider their options in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

A panel of 25 business leaders evaluated and selected the winners of the 2020 Signature Awards from 120 entries in eleven categories.

“Plan sponsors, as always, are at the forefront of financial education for their employees and are stepping up their efforts to help participants understand the complexities of the CARES act and the options available to them in this turbulent time,” notes Will Hansen, executive director of PSCA. “They are the trusted source of financial information for their employees, and it’s a role they take seriously. We are pleased to recognize these outstanding programs that go above and beyond to educate, assist, and, where necessary, calm fears.”
