With Jack Vanderhei and Brett Hammond
Is there a retirement crisis in the US? What percentage of pre-retiree households are likely to have adequate retirement income? Would reform proposals be enough to help those who are currently at risk?
The answers to these questions depend in large part on the definition of a “successful retirement.”
Join EBRI research director Jack VanDerhei as he provides analysis from several different perspectives. This webinar will be moderated by American Funds’ research leader Brett Hammond.
This webinar first examines the impact of various retirement reform proposals by assessing the current, aggregate national retirement deficit.
Further discussion explores the impact of the following potential initiatives on the overall deficit, as well as by age cohorts:
- Automatic Individual Retirement Account (IRA) programs, such as the one proposed under President Obama’s 2015 budget
- Programs expanding access to defined contribution plans, such as the Automatic Retirement Plan Act of 2017 (ARPA) proposal
- A universal defined-contribution scenario
- Auto-portability proposals
