Perceived Value of Employer-Provided Benefits Falls Amid High Out-of-Pocket Costs

Jan. 20, 2014
"Benefits remain a critical element of the employee experience, and the vast majority of workers agree that benefits are just as important to them as their salaries. But according to [a survey] of 1,506 U.S. retirement plan participants who also receive health benefits, the perceived value of benefits is eroding among workers who complain about out-of-pocket health care expenses. The fall-off is most pronounced among workers under 50, 30% of whom say benefits are 'definitely worth it' -- down from 45% who said so in 2011."
