The Auto IRA: Strategies for Successful Implementation

The Auto IRA:
Strategies for Successful Implementation

Monday, October 26, 2009

President Obama has proposed and Congress is considering creating an Auto-IRA that would give millions of workers a new way to save for retirement. This forum focused on discussion of:

  • The impact of the Auto IRA—what contribution will it make to retirement security, especially for lower-income workers?
  • What can we learn from programs with similar goals in New Zealand and the UK?
  • Key implementation issues—how can we ensure that Auto IRA works well for workers, small business employers and financial industry stakeholders?
