Let Your Voice Be Heard: Key Retirement Savings Bill Before Nevada Senate Committee Wednesday

Nevada Legislature work and save retirement AARP Nevada
A key "work and save" bill will be heard during the Nevada Senate Government Affairs Committee on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, at 3:30pm.

It's time to speak up and help our Nevada lawmakers hear the voice of AARP's 340,000 members as the Senate Government Affairs Committee will hear the very important Retirement Savings Bill (Work and Save) SB200 is being heard on Wednesday, March 24th at 3:30 p.m. in Carson City.

Many employers do not offer ANY retirement benefits or a way to save for retirement. This bill will create a program for employees who currently do not have retirement benefits, a new way to save for retirement through payroll deductions. This is an “auto-IRA” type program - where these businesses do NOT have to contribute to it or manage the program – they just let their employers take advantage of it.

People today just don't save for retirement on their own (less than 10%), and saving through payroll deductions increases the number who save up to 15 times!  This will help Nevadans save money they need to have a secure retirement.

We need your help! Tell the Senate Government Affairs Committee to support this important Retirement Savings/Work and Save bill by sending in written support, and you can also support the bill at the Hearing:

  1. Written Support: Consider sending written comments/testimony 24 hours before the Hearing to the Committee Manager at  to be posted for the hearing.
