Retirement Savings Proposal Could Help Kansas Workers

Saving for Retirement

As the state legislature reconvenes this month, AARP Kansas plans to work with lawmakers to help ensure that more workers are financially able to retire. 

Nearly 40 percent of the state’s 1.1 million private-sector employees don’t have access to a retirement savings plan at work, according to an analysis by Econsult Solutions. 

That’s why AARP Kansas wants lawmakers to adopt a state-facilitated retirement savings program that would let workers have money automatically deducted from their paychecks. The retirement account would be portable if they changed jobs. AARP encourages members to contact their state legislators and ask them to vote in favor of the proposal.
