Why Organizations Support EBRI!

Work of EBRI

Where the world turns for facts on employee benefits.
Financial and health security! Retirement, savings, and health programs are at the heart of workers,’ employers,’ and our nation’s economic security. Founded in 1978, EBRI is the most authoritative and objective source of national data and research on these critical, complex issues.

EBRI focuses solely on data and research
no lobbying or advocacy.
EBRI stands alone in employee benefits research as an independent, nonprofit, and nonpartisan organization. It analyzes and reports research data without spin or underlying agenda. All findings, whether on financial data, options, or trends, are revealing and reliable—the reason EBRI information is the gold standard for private analysts and decision makers, government policymakers, the media, and the public. Reports and books are published online, while members have access to more detailed insights, tabulations and comparisons, and researchers.

EBRI explores the breadth of financial and health security issues.

EBRI studies the world of health security and retirement security programs—issues such as 401(k)s, IRAs, retirement income adequacy, consumer-driven benefits, Social Security, tax treatment of both retirement and health benefits, cost management, worker and employer attitudes, policy reform proposals, and pension assets and funding. There is widespread recognition that if data exists, EBRI knows it.   Members can save a tremendous amount of time and cost with a simple call to EBRI!

EBRI delivers a steady stream of invaluable research and analysis:

  • EBRI publications include in-depth coverage of key issues and trends; summaries of research
    findings and policy developments; timely factsheets on hot topics; regular updates on legislative and regulatory developments; comprehensive reference resources on benefit programs and workforce issues; and major surveys on public attitudes.
  • EBRI meetings present and explore issues with thought leaders from all sectors.
  • EBRI regularly provides congressional testimony, and briefs policymakers, member organizations, and the media on critical developments and new data and findings.

    sources on employee benefits by all media.

  • EBRI directs members and other constituencies to the information they need, and undertakes new research on an ongoing basis.

EBRI makes the facts available.

EBRI assumes a public service responsibility to make its findings accessible at www.ebri.org—so that all decisions that relate to employee benefits, whether made in Congress or board rooms or families’ homes, are based on the highest quality, most dependable information.
