EBRI - a nonpartisan tax-exempt organization - was created in 1978 for the purpose of contributing to sound employee benefit programs and public policy through independent, objective, fact-based research and education.
Focusing solely on data and research, EBRI is not an advocacy, lobbying, or consulting group.
These programs support the security and wellbeing of U.S. workers, retirees, and their families; play key roles in many employers’ compensation and talent strategies; and represent significant portions of the U.S. economy.
We serve the public, employers, service providers, workers and their families, and policymakers.
We continue to research existing programs, designs, and practices, while also focusing on emerging trends and policies. Accelerating changes and uncertainties in the benefit system make our work more relevant than ever.
Our work supports employers, policymakers, service providers, and others in developing innovative solutions and making policy and design decisions.
Our more than 100 members are from a wide range of leading companies, including plan sponsors, providers, consultants, asset managers, unions, doctor/hospital groups, and insurers.
