EBRI Issue Brief – May 2013
Where does the money come go in individual retirement accounts (IRAs)? Most of the new contributions go into Roth IRAs, but most of the assets are held in traditional IRAs, where the money originated from a rollover from other tax-qualified retirement plans (such as 401(k) plans) and not from new contributions, according to new research by EBRI. Press release.
EBRI Notes – April 2013
“Characteristics of the Population With Consumer-Driven and High-Deductible Health Plans, 2005–2012,” and “Retirement Plan Participation and Asset Allocation, 2010”
Consumer-driven Health Plans: It is often assumed that consumer-driven health plan enrollees are more likely than those with traditional coverage to be young, because they use less health care, on average. However, that is generally not the case in recent years, according to new research by EBRI. Press release.
Multiple Retirement Plans: People who own more than one type of retirement plan are more likely to invest a higher percentage in equities (stocks) than those who don’t, according to new research by EBRI. Press release.
EBRI Notes – May 2013
"Trends in Health Coverage for Part-Time Workers," and "IRA Withdrawals: How Much, When, and Other Saving Behavior"
Part-time Workers: Whether or not the federal health insurance reform law causes employers to hire part-time workers, the trend away from full-time employment is already underway, according to new research from EBRI. Press release.
IRA Withdrawals: Those Americans between ages 61 and 70, who are withdrawing money from their individual retirement accounts (IRA), are making withdrawals that are larger, both in absolute dollar amounts and as a percentage of their IRA account balance, than those taken by older households, according to a new report from EBRI. Press release.
