NEW YORK, New York, Feb. 25, 2016 /York’s Largest Spanish Weekly Newspaper – Millennials planning for retirement? It’s never too early – especially since more and more lack access to the kind of workplace retirement savings plans earlier generations took for granted.
AARP and Young Invincibles hosted Cheers to Your Future: A Happy Hour on Millennials’ Economic Outlook, featuring City Comptroller Scott Stringer, Public Advocate Letitia James, Demos and about 50 Millennials, at Joe’s Pub in the Public Theater in Greenwich Village this evening.
The groups are supporting “Secure Choice,” state legislation sponsored by Senator Diane Savino of Staten Island and Assemblyman Robert Rodriguez of the Bronx that would establish a state-facilitated plan to give working New Yorkers of all ages the option to save at work via payroll deduction if their employer offers no such plan.
Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this month he would introduce city legislation to make New York the first city in the nation with such a savings plan, working with Public Advocate James, Comptroller Stringer and City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito.
