Roadmaps to Retirement: Taking Stock and Looking Forward

The Harkin Institute and the U.S. Department of Labor invite you to a retirement security roundtable focused on Social Security, disability employment, and retirement savings. Social Security and Disability Insurance are essential earned benefits providing a safety net both during employment and in retirement.

The first panel will discuss both programs and reform proposals to sustain and strengthen them. The second panel will focus on individual retirement savings through employers and other programs. Employer retirement savings programs are key for building adequate retirement income, but access and participation vary by income, firm size, occupation, and race. Accumulation in those accounts is also hampered as a result of leakage due to cash-outs and early withdrawals. The panel will discuss strategies to close the gaps and improve account portability.
