Lexington, KY – March 20, 2017 – The National Association of Government Defined
Contribution Administrators (NAGDCA) was recognized today with an Overall
Excellence Eddy Award from Pensions & Investments for its “Your Whole Story” campaign as part of National
Retirement Security Week. Eddy awards are given to recognize best practices in providing investment education to
participants. Pensions & Investments created a new category this year to honor
the progress of this unique initiative.
NAGDCA, along with plan sponsors and
service providers across the country, celebrate National Retirement Security
Week the third week of October every year. The “Your Whole Story” campaign was developed in coordination with the
National Association of Retirement Plan Participants (NARPP). The overall goal of the campaign is to reduce
participants’ stress and anxiety about retirement decisions and engage them
with information that can improve financial decision-making.
The materials include a savings journey
map and twelve field notes which are best practices for individual retirement
savers. Campaign materials are housed on a microsite for plan sponsors and
participants to view, select and download. NAGDCA will expand upon the campaign in 2017.
