The 1 Mar 90 changes to the SBP cost structure 6.5 vs. the old 2.510 calculation method are incorporated into the study. The central theme is that SBP should be used as a foundation for financial planning, and that other alternatives such as insurance and investments should not compete with, but should supplement SBP.
