While the impact of healthcare reform and the funding of pension liabilities are still nagging concerns, confidence seems to be returning to the realm of retirement, according to the more than 450 senior finance executives responding to Treasury & Risk's 2011 Retirement Survey. About 44% say employees have increased their contributions to the 401(k) plans, compared to 15% in 2010, and 42% report more employees have enrolled in the defined-contribution plan, an increase of 10 percentage points from last year. Meanwhile, just 6% say their companies either decreased or eliminated their 401(k) match in the last 12 months, vs. 19% in 2010. Companies continue to offer more investment options (58%) and improve them: About 37% have added or plan to add a Roth IRA, while 31% offer annuities or income products inside or outside their plans or aim to add them this year.
