MetLife's 2016 Lifetime Income Poll assessed defined contribution (DC) plan sponsors familiarity with – and knowledge about – regulatory developments by the U.S. Departments of Labor and Treasury to strengthen retirement security among U.S. workers. It also gauged how these plan sponsors view the role of DC plans in the provision of retirement income.
MetLife's 2015 Stable Value StudySM is the third Stable Value Study that MetLife has commissioned to gain strategic insight into the current marketplace for this capital preservation investment option within DC plans. The inaugural study was conducted immediately following the financial crisis of 2008-2009. A second study on Stable Value was released in 2013. New in the 2015 study are comparisons to the other main capital preservation option, money market funds, with special attention to why one is chosen over the other.
