Why is Congress Talking About Retirement?

The reality is, changing job markets and rising inflation is a lot to take in –if we learned anything recently, it’s the importance of financial security for ourselves and our loved ones.

Planning for retirement is one of the most common forms of financial security, which is why in 2019 Congress worked to expand access to retirement plans with the SECURE Act.  This was a major win to help more people get started on retirement savings to build their financial security

Now, lawmakers are taking things a step further to address common barriers that people face when saving for retirement. We sat down with Senator Rob Portman and Senator Ben Cardin as if they were at our kitchen table to explain why this is an important issue in Washington, DC.
