Harkin-ing Back to Pensions
Benefits Bryan Cave Link to more items from this source
Feb. 12, 2014
"Some other interesting tidbits from [Sen. Harkin's proposed USA Retirement Funds] are: [1] The automatic contribution to the USA Retirement Funds would be 3% for employees who are automatically enrolled in 2015 and would increase 1% per year until 2018 at which point it would be fixed at 6%.... [2] If an employee opted out of the automatic contribution, or elected a different percentage, that election would be revoked after 2 years and the employee would be reenrolled at the applicable automatic contribution rate unless he or she took action to change it. [3] Each Fund will be governed by a board of trustees of at least 3 people who are independent of service providers under the fund and meet certain other qualification requirements. [4] Each board of trustees must, among other requirements, establish procedures allowing participants to petition the board to remove a trustee and to comment on the management and administration of the Fund."
