Savings and Retirement Forum: “A Proposal for Retirement Plan Reform.”

On Thursday, October 7, 2010, the Savings and Retirement Forum will be held at the Congressional Budget Office (D St SW & 2nd Ave SW, Washington, District of Columbia) [Directions to CBO], at 8:30 a.m.

Mark J. Warshawsky, Ph.D., will present "A Proposal for Retirement Plan Reform." A preponderance of evidence from studies of retirement preparedness, employer commitment to retirement plans, and the troubled future of Social Security, indicates that we need to take a stronger stance in the United States to ensure the benefit adequacy of retirement plans. At the same time, we should be realistic and prudent, building incrementally upon a voluntary system that has been quite successful to date, keeping the interest of employers to sponsor retirement plans, rather than creating whole new untried institutions.

If you plan on coming please RSVP. Coffee, juice, and pastries will be served. Please feel free to pass this along to others who you feel might be interested in attending.
