Newtown, PA – Johnson Kendall & Johnson (JKJ) has again been named by The National Association of Plan Advisors (NAPA)  as a top defined contribution (DC) Advisor Team.  JKJ, credited as the inventor of the 401(k), has made this esteemed list every year since NAPA began publishing it several years ago.

“We are, once again, excited, proud, and humbled to have been named to NAPA’s Top DC Advisor Teams,” said Ben Hall, JKJ Retirement Services Vice President.  “Year after year this is indeed a team achievement, and we could not have accomplished our past, current, and future successes without the support & partnership of our clients & their professional advisors & practitioners.”

“Since their inception, NAPA’s various industry lists have been a valuable Who’s Who of who matters in the world of retirement plans and retirement plan advisors,” noted Nevin Adams, Chief Content Officer of the American Retirement Association, and Editor-in-Chief of NAPA-Net, the nation’s leading online resource for retirement plan advisors.  “This latest chapter – the NAPA Top DC Advisor Teams, ranked by self-reported DC assets under advisement – presents a compelling case for the positive impact on the nation’s private retirement system”.

Unlike other lists, this focuses on assets under advisement related to their defined contribution (DC) practice specifically.  This year’s list, which focuses on teams with at least $100 million in AUA, represents more than $1 trillion in DC assets under advisement.  Significantly, those teams include more than 1500 advisors – and many more support personnel – working to help Americans prepare for a financially satisfying retirement in 40 states and Puerto Rico.  “As the nation’s leading voice for retirement plan advisors, we are pleased to highlight these contributions,” noted Adams.

The full list of NAPA’s Top DC Advisor Teams, which will be published in the Spring issue of NAPA Net, the Magazine, is also available online at
