1989 Survey of Pension Providers
The Survey of Pension Providers was designed to gather more detailed information on the pension plans of survey participants than could reasonably be expected in a personal interview. For cases where either the respondent or the spouse or partner of the respondent had some pension coverage from a current job, the SCF interviewer asked for information that could be used to contact the providers of the pensions. The providers were asked for copies of the official summary plan descriptions, and this information was coded for use with the main survey data.
