Helping Utah Workers Save for Retirement

More than half of private-sector employees in Utah don’t have access to a retirement savings plan at work, and many reach retirement age without enough savings. That’s why AARP Utah is working with lawmakers and business and labor groups to draft a Work and Save bill. If passed, the legislation would create a state-facilitated retirement savings plan to help such workers prepare for the future.

Among Utahns retiring in the next 15 years, nearly 1 in 5 will have more debt than accessible cash and savings. In a recent AARP survey, 3 in 4 Utahns ages 25-64 expressed support for a state-facilitated retirement savings plan.

AARP Utah is asking members to urge their legislators to support the Work and Save bill. For contact information, go to and click on Find Your Legislator.
