Retirement and Pensions
Committee Democrats believe that after a lifetime of hard work, Americans deserve a secure and dignified retirement. Yet, the retirement landscape has dramatically changed. Workers are less likely to spend their entire career with one company and earn a guaranteed lifetime pension upon retirement, and tens of millions of workers do not have access to an employer-provided retirement savings plan. Committee Democrats support innovative solutions to reduce this coverage gap, increase access to and adequacy of workplace retirement savings plans, and put more Americans on a path toward being able to live a stable retirement.
