The Financial Services Institute (FSI) has expressed its support of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act (SECURE Act) which is expected to be brought up for a vote in the U.S. House of Representatives this week.
“The SECURE Act is an important step to addressing the retirement savings crisis by expanding opportunities for Main Street Americans to increase their retirement savings,” said FSI President & CEO Dale Brown. “Too many Americans have inadequate retirement savings, and research has shown that investors who work with a trusted financial advisor are better prepared for their retirement. The SECURE Act will expand workplace retirement savings opportunities for workers by providing tax incentives for small employers and expanding availability of multiple employer plans. It also removes the age cap on IRA contributions, allowing individuals to save for retirement as long as they are working, and expands access to lifetime income products in retirement plans. We urge the House of Representatives to pass this critical legislation.”
