Support HB 1290, the Colorado Secure Savings Plan to ensure all Coloradoans have the ability to save for their futures!

Today, a secure retirement is out of reach for many Coloradans, especially those who work for small businesses. We need a commonsense approach that helps encourage private savings so more people can have the freedom to live independently throughout their lives.

Currently, nearly half of Colorado’s private sector workers -- over 750,000 people -- do not have a retirement savings plan at work.  House Bill 1290, The Colorado Secure Savings Plan, can help.  HB 1290 would create a Board of Trustees to develop a plan for a public-private partnership that would offer a low-fee IRA to employees without access to workplace plans. The Board would then send the legislature its recommendations for final approval and the creation of the Colorado Secure Savings Plan.

The Colorado Secure Savings Plan offers an innovative way for our state to help solve the state’s retirement savings crisis.

Please contact your State Senator and urge their support of HB 1290 today!

Dear [Decision Maker],

Today, a secure retirement is out of reach for many Coloradans, especially those who work for small businesses. In fact, over half of private sector workers -- 750,000 Coloradans -- do not have access to a retirement savings plan at work. We need a commonsense approach that helps encourage private savings so more people can have the freedom to live independently throughout their lives.






HB 1290 would give small business employers the opportunity to help their employees save for retirement with no additional operational burden to the employers. This program offers an innovative way for our state to help solve our retirement savings crisis.
Thank you for your time.

Sincerely,
