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”.

R.R. Donnelley to freeze defined benefit plan and reinstate 401(k) match


CHICAGO—Printer R.R. Donnelley & Sons Co. is freezing its defined benefit plans, but will reinstate and enhance its 401(k) plan matching contribution.

Benefit accruals will stop at the end of 2011, company officials announced Wednesday during a conference call on the Chicago-based printing company's third-quarter earnings.

Company officials attributed the decision to freeze the defined benefit program to volatility of market returns and interest rates on the plans' funding requirements.

At the same time, R.R. Donnelley will restore and improve its 401(k) plan matching contribution. Prior to suspending its contributions in 2009, Donnelley had matched 25% of employees' pretax contributions up to 6% of pay.

Company officials did not disclose how the 401(k) match will be enhanced.
