  • Empower Retirement lauds House approval of the SECURE Act of 2019

    May 24, 2019 by Empower Retirement

    GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today the U.S. House of Representatives sent a message with its approval of a bill that reforms retirement policy affecting working Americans.

    “Congress has done a great service to American retirement savers by voting for the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act of 2019. Empower Retirement applauds lawmakers for considering these big ideas and big changes to retirement planning. ”

    The House approved 417-3 the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act of 2019. This bill – one of three retirement policy proposals in Congress – would bring on necessary reforms in retirement planning policy and encourage Americans to save for retirement.

    Empower Retirement, which administers $610 billion in assets for more than 9 million retirement plan participants, applauds this bipartisan effort.

    Empower President & CEO Edmund F. Murphy III said:

    “Congress has done a great service to American retirement savers by voting for the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act of 2019. Empower Retirement applauds lawmakers for considering these big ideas and big changes to retirement planning.

    “It’s exciting that retirement policy has garnered bipartisan support from Reps. Richard Neal, D-Mass., chairman of the Ways & Means Committee, and Kevin Brady, R-Texas, the committee’s ranking member, who understand the importance of helping American workers save for retirement.

    “This bill has the potential to make it easier for small businesses to set up retirement plans – something they’ve told us they favor. We believe these changes will encourage retirement savings and help provide American workers with a more secure retirement.

    “The next stop is the Senate, where we hope these reforms move quickly.

    “The Senate’s similar legislation, the Retirement Enhancement Savings Act, also is riding a bipartisan wave of support and swift action on these proposals lays the foundation for Congress to begin working on the next round of pension reform.”
