An AARP study found that Ohio business owners want policy makers to support legislation creating a public–private retirement savings option for workers.

AARP is supporting states in their efforts to create and implement a state retirement savings option that would enable small business owners and their employees to better prepare for retirement. These privately managed state savings options would be easy for employers to set up with low costs and low risks to the employer and the state. This phone survey of 602 small business owners with 1 to 100 employees was commissioned by AARP in Ohio to gauge the support of small business owners in the state for a public-private retirement savings program.


The survey was fielded from May 4 and June 9, 2023. The sample came from a Data Axel business list and is weighted using the 2020 Economic Census from the U.S. Census Bureau (based on industry, number of employees, and county).
