It’s happening! Bipartisan Lawmakers, AARP, PA Treasury, experts to encourage retirement security steps during Wednesday morning event.

Republicans and Democrats, state House and Senate lawmakers, the PA Treasurer’s office, and AARP will hear from experts beginning at 8:30 a.m., Wednesday, April 17, in Room 60 East Wing, about the need for an auto-IRA style retirement security savings program for working Pennsylvanians.

Lawmakers from both General Assembly chambers are planning to introduce legislation in the near future to make an auto-IRA retirement savings program a reality in Pennsylvania. The low-cost plan would benefit employees who are not currently offered retirement savings options at work.

Experts who have launched similar programs in other states will share their stories and inspiration during the briefing, including the former executive director of OregonSaves, Lisa Massena; Angela Antonelli, executive director, Center for Retirement Initiatives at Georgetown University; and Sarah Mysiewicz Gill, state legislative representative for AARP State Government Affairs.

Reporters are encouraged to attend.
