While there are several mechanisms for financial retirement preparation, employer-sponsored retirement plans have been, and will likely continue to be, a primary vehicle for retirement saving.  As a result, the Baby Boom generation continues to exit the workforce and Millennials enter, an understanding of the value placed on employer-sponsored retirement plans is critical.  To better understand potential generational differences in the emphasis placed on employer-sponsored plans, we first examine differences between older and younger respondents in the importance placed on employer-provided retirement support.  Then, we develop a model to test the hypothesis that those with fewer independent retirement assets will be more likely to place greater importance on the role of the employer in retirement preparedness.
