Closing the Access Gap:
What Can We Expect from SECURE 2.0 and
State-Facilitated Retirement Savings Programs?
A Review of Progress and the 2023 Outlook
Time: 1:00–2:00 p.m. ET
At the start of 2023, there are 16 state-facilitated retirement savings programs designed to provide workers who lack access to an employer-sponsored plan with the opportunity to save for retirement. Just three of these state programs — CalSavers, Illinois Secure Choice, and OregonSaves — already have accumulated $640 million in assets. More recently, they have been joined by three additional state auto-IRA programs that are now open to all eligible workers — MyCTSavings, Maryland$aves, and the Colorado SecureSavings Program.
Congress also passed SECURE 2.0 at the end of last year, a second set of retirement reforms that build off the SECURE Act reforms passed in 2019, intended to help encourage and support new retirement plan adoption and worker participation in those plans.
Please join the Georgetown Center for Retirement Initiatives (CRI) for a one-hour webinar and hear from experts who will share their observations about how the latest federal reforms could reshape the retirement plan market and expand coverage and participation. You also will hear updates from the three newest state-facilitated retirement savings programs available to workers.
