Recently, The ESOP Association joined colleagues in the retirement community in signing on to two letters in support of issues important to the retirement savings community.
The first, as part of the Retirement Savings Network, of which the Association is a member, was a letter celebrating the 40th birthday of ERISA that included 40 facts about the legislation and the benefits brought to millions in this country that have retirement savings. The letter was sent to all Capital Hill offices.
The second was a statement to the members of the Senate Finance Committee regarding the hearing on retirement savings held on September 16, 2014. The statement was made on behalf of the Coalition to Protect Retirement of which the Association is a member. The ESOP Association also submitted comments on behalf of Association members.
