Retirement Savings Policy Initiatives

Retirement Savings Policy Initiatives

Several states have begun implementing programs to increase retirement plan coverage. The most common approach involves automatically enrolling workers without a workplace plan in an individual retirement account administered by a private sector firm, with the ability to opt out. 

The retirement savings project provides data, analysis, and technical assistance to help these states develop effective savings plans that do not overburden employers.
