Recent developments have raised many issues about the role of the states in boosting retirement plan coverage and retirement adequacy. State-run retirement systems are, in aggregate, well short of the funding they need to finance promised benefits. Many workers are not covered in any retirement plan.
On October 7, the Retirement Security Project will host an event to discuss these and related issues. Presenters will examine options for structuring state-sponsored retirement savings plans for small businesses and revisit the question of whether state and local government workers should be covered by Social Security. Following each presentation, discussants will add their thoughts and all participants will take questions from the moderator and the audience.
