BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

DB pension plans losing ground: Survey


More than a quarter of employers have frozen their largest pension plan during the previous two years, according to survey released Tuesday.

The survey of 162 employers conducted by the Employee Benefit Research Institute and Mercer Human Resource Consulting found that 27.7% of respondents either have closed off their largest defined benefit plan to new employees or have completely frozen the plan during the last two years.

According to the survey, pension phaseouts are likely to continue, with just over 16% of respondents expecting to freeze a plan within the next two years.
