PSCA 2018 Signature Award Winners Announced at National Conference

Issued by PSCA [Plan Sponsor Council of America]

May 1, 2018

Scottsdale, AZ (April 30, 2018) - The Plan Sponsor Council of America (PSCA), part of the American Retirement Association (ARA), this evening announced the winners of its 2018 Signature Awards at a special presentation leading up to its 71st Annual National Conference, running May 1-2 in Scottsdale, Arizona. In addition, Cindy Hounsell, President of the Women's Institute For A Secure Retirement (WISER), was awarded PSCA's prestigious Lifetime Achievement Award at the event. PSCA is the leading association for sponsors of voluntary, employer-based retirement plans in the U.S.

PSCA's Signature Awards recognize excellence in retirement plan communications to both plan sponsors and plan participants. Effective education and communications are key to helping employees understand why saving is important, how much to save, and how to be better prepared for retirement. Campaigns that are creative and go beyond the basics of education are worthy of recognition as they ultimately contribute to the retirement security of American workers.

"We congratulate this year's winners," said Jack Towarnicky, PSCA Executive Director. "The innovation and dedication demonstrated by this group sets an example and helps establish best practices for outcome-driven plan communication and education."

The 2018 Signature Award competition includes categories such as Financial Wellness, Retirement Readiness, and HSA Communications.  A judging panel of 24 business leaders, primarily plan sponsors, selected this year's award winners.
