Upcoming event: “Should They Stay or Should They Go? Reexamining Retirement Tax Incentives”


Should They Stay or Should They Go? Reexamining Retirement Tax Incentives

Thursday, March 2, 2017
12pm - Lunch
12:30pm - Panel Starts
Do tax incentives raise retirement savings? Are they carefully targeted at the families who need them most? Join us for a lunchtime panel discussion on the effectiveness of current tax incentives to encourage saving for retirement – a timely topic given growing momentum in Congress to overhaul the tax code. In addition to debating the efficacy of retirement tax incentives, the conversation will cover the upside-down nature of current retirement tax expenditures, the potential role of the Saver’s Credit to boost savings for low- and moderate-income families, the possibility for consolidation and simplification of the various savings incentives in the code, and other reform proposals.

  • Peter J. Brady, Senior Economist at the Investment Company Institute (ICI)
  • Catherine Collinson, President of the Transamerica Center for Retirement Studies
  • David Kamin, Professor of Law at New York University and author of new paper entitled “Getting Americans to Save: In Defense of (Reformed) Tax Incentives”
  • Monique Morrissey, Economist, Economic Policy Institute
  • Moderated by Ray Suarez
