Unlocking Small Business Retirement Security

Wednesday, March 27, 2019 | 11:30 AM

The Committee on Small Business will meet for a hearing titled,“Unlocking Small Business Retirement Security.” The hearing is scheduled to begin at 11:30 A.M. on Wednesday, March 27, 2019 in Room 2360 of the Rayburn House Office Building.

Retirement security is one of the most important issues facing Americans today. Retirement benefits not only provide future financial security for business owners and employees, but also allow entrepreneurs the ability to attract and retain talented individuals as their businesses grow.  However, many retirement plans are complicated and expensive to start and maintain. These challenges lead many small business owners to forgo such a plan, leaving the employers and the employees without adequate retirement savings. The hearing will examine the options for small employers, the benefits and barriers they face in offering plans, and options for expanding coverage.
