Chicago Community Forums on Retirement Security

Many people work their whole lives but don’t have enough savings for retirement. In Illinois, over 2.5 million private-sector workers don’t have access to an employment based retirement savings program.  This is the primary way most people save for retirement, so without this savings opportunity seniors will over rely on Social Security.

It’s time for a common sense solution to retirement security.

Join an important conversation about the future of retirement in our state. AARP Illinois (supported by community partners, including: IABG, Heartland Alliance, the Shriver Center and the Woodstock Institute) will host state Senator Daniel Biss, other elected officials, and community members from around the state to discuss the Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program (SB 2758).

This crucial legislation could change the way many employees in the state are able to save for retirement. Members of the state assembly are expected to act on the legislation as early as the end of this month.

We hope you can attend one of the following forums in November:
