Re-Envisioning Retirement Security

Wednesday, October 21, 2009 - 09:00

On October 21, 2009, Retirement USA held a conference, Re-Envisioning Retirement Security, in Washington, D.C.  Labor Secretary Hilda Solis delivered the keynote address, and other notable speakers included Richard Trumka, president of the AFL-CIO; Anna Burger, SEIU secretary-treasurer and chair of Change to Win; and Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist David Cay Johnston.

Conference participants heard why a new private retirement system is needed; learned about the principles that should underlie a new system; and discussed proposals for a universal, secure, and adequate system for the future.  Retirement USA is an initiative that is working to create a system that, along with Social Security, will provide universal, secure, and adequate retirement income to future retirees.
