New study questions the usefulness of tax preferences in retirement plans

A recent study based on data from Denmark has called into question the usefulness of tax preferences to boost retirement savings in employer-provided retirement plans.

The Employee Benefit Research Institute, Washington, D.C., recaps in a January 2013 report the findings of a study of Danish workers. The Danish research explores the impact that changes in tax incentives for workplace retirement plans might have on worker saving behaviors. The Danish study also analyzed the impact of defaults in employer-provided pensions and government mandates on Danish savings patterns.
