GAO Testimony: Key Private Pensions Issues to Consider Following the Enron Collapse
U.S. Government Accountability Office [GAO]Link to more items from this source
Feb. 27, 2002
14 pages. "The collapse of the Enron Corporation and the resulting loss of employee retirement savings highlighted several key vulnerabilities in the nation's private pension system. Asset diversification was a crucial lesson, especially for defined contribution plans, in which employees bear the investment risk.... Although disclosure rules require plan sponsors to provide participants with a summary of their plan benefits and rights and to notify them when benefits are changed, this information is not always clear, particularly in the case of complex plans like floor-offset arrangements. Employees, like other investors, also need reliable and understandable information on a company's financial condition and prospects." [GAO-02-480T, published Feb. 27, 2002, released Feb. 27, 2002]
