Delaware has one of the most vibrant small business communities in the country, with 98% of businesses in the state having 100 employees or less. Small businesses also employ over half of the workforce in Delaware. Yet, The AARP Public Policy Institute reports that about 66 percent of Delaware’s small business employees do not have access to a retirement plan at work. At this rate, half of all households are at risk of not being able to handle everyday expenses – like medicine, utilities, and rent – in their later years.
