Retirement Insecurity in Illinois
We believe all workers should have the tools they need to retire with dignity. However, retirement insecurity is a growing concern for many workers in our state:
- More than 50% of private-sector workers in Illinois have no access to an employee based retirement savings account.
- Low-income workers, particularly those in the service industry and those working part-time, are even less likely to have access to this important savings tool.
- Without retirement savings, more and more workers will fall into poverty during their retirement years.
An Automatic IRA Program (SB2400 / HB2461) will give workers access to a retirement savings account that will help them build financially secure futures. Help us build the movemnet by supporting efforts to create an Auto IRA program for Illinois workers. Add your organization, financial institution, or business to our list of supporters.
