Dimensions of 401(k) Plan Design (PDF)
Pension Research Council, The Wharton School of The University of PennsylvaniaLink to more items from this source
Apr. 7, 2005

56 pages. Excerpt: This paper seeks to understand why plan sponsors design their 401(k) plans the way they do. Drawing on a rich dataset of several hundred 401(k) plans, we find support for the argument that these plans are principally a form of tax-motivated compensation. In other words, to appeal to better-paid workers, employers provide more generous matching contributions and non-cash plan design features. [WP2005-05]
