“Informed and Actionable Retirement Research”
DCIIA’s Retirement Research Center (RRC) is dedicated to pursuing practical research that informs better decision-making and offers meaningful and actionable steps towards improving retirement outcomes. We will pursue research that examines obstacles and opportunities, dispels myths, shores up truths, and delivers realistic solutions that can improve the design and implementation of workplace savings plans—from combating participant inertia on through to examining investment and risk management.
In partnership with employers, our members and retirement plan influencers, our research efforts will focus on affirming and supporting their ability to deliver retirement security. Our research efforts will also inform and educate policy makers and retirement savings system stakeholders.
When evaluating new research proposals, we look to our research criteria to help us approve and prioritize potential initiatives.
DCIIA’s Retirement Research Board (RRB) maintains a research agenda to assist in the research approval and prioritization process. The agenda is subject to change, and is not the only consideration when prioritizing potential projects. For consideration, please contact our Research Board directly to discuss possible research ideas and collaborations.

DCIIA’s RRB is open to research collaborations with external parties, including:
All partnership decisions will be subject to scrutiny to ensure alignment in priorities and approach, and ultimately, RRB approval. In certain cases, a request for proposal “RFP” process will be employed to select among possible partners/vendors.
