Jefferson City, MO – The National Association of Government Defined Contribution Administrators, Inc. (NAGDCA) awarded the State of Missouri Deferred Compensation Plan the 2019 Leadership Recognition Award for the plan's transition of their external field representatives, also known as education specialist, to internal MOSERS employees. This award recognizes MOSERS for outstanding achievement in the Plan Design & Administration category. The Leadership Awards highlights the plans who demonstrate excellence and innovation in retirement plan design, participant education, technology, and/or effective communication methods in government defined contribution plans.

From the NAGDCA Leadership Awards Booklet:

“In July 2017, the State of Missouri Deferred Compensation Plan transitioned six field representative positions, otherwise known as education specialists, from the record keeper to MOSERS employees. This transition helped streamline education and marketing efforts, increased reporting and targeting capabilities, built a more recognizable and trusting relationship with state employers and employees and, in general, improved customer service to state of Missouri employees.”
