2020 Signature Awards Winners

PSCA’s Signature Awards recognize exemplary retirement plan education and communications. While education has long been an essential element in helping American workers save for retirement, those programs are even more critical today as participants consider their options in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. A panel of 25 business leaders evaluated and selected the winners of the 2020 Signature Awards from 120 entries in eleven categories. PSCA is pleased to recognize these outstanding programs that go above and beyond to educate, assist, and, where necessary, calm fears. Read more about the winning campaigns in the Summer 2020 Defined Contribution Insights magazine article below.
