Help New Jerseyans To Save For Their Futures!
Vote Yes on A4134
now, over half of New Jersey’s private sector workers – 1.7 million employees –
do not have a way to save for retirement through their job. Yet we know that
workers are 15 times more likely to save for retirement if they can do so through
Security was never meant to be a person’s only source of income in retirement. Personal
retirement savings is critical – but the average working-age household has only
$3,000 saved for retirement. AARP wants
to change that.
Bill 4134 – the New Jersey Secure Choice Savings Program Act – would establish
a voluntary way for workers to save at work through an automatic payroll deduction.
The professionally managed program would be available to Garden State workers
who don’t currently have access to a retirement savings plan through their job
– and would come at no cost to taxpayers or the state.
Roy Freiman (D-16) and Raj Mukherji (D-33) along with Assemblywoman Carol
Murphy (D-7) are prime sponsors of the bill.
Now it’s time for the rest of their colleagues in the Assembly to
support the bill. Please take a moment right now to urge your local Assemblyman
or Assemblywoman to support the passage of the NJ Secure Choice Savings Program
Act (A4134) at the scheduled vote on Monday, December 17th.
Take Action Now To Help New Jersey Workers Save For Their futures!
Dear [Decision Maker],
New Jerseyans, like all Americans, are facing a retirement crisis. We know that Social Security alone isn't enough to get us through retirement but every day, 1.7 million New Jersey workers go to work without a way to save for their future while on the job.
I am writing to ask you to vote yes on the Secure Choice Savings Program Act (4134) sponsored by Assemblymen Roy Freiman, Raj Mukherji and Assemblywoman Carol Murphy. Secure Choice will provide workers with an easy way to save for retirement through an automatic payroll deduction, and will provide small businesses that don't currently offer a retirement plan with a program to help their employees save.Workers who save for retirement rely less on public assistance later in life. In fact, enacting Secure Choice could save New Jersey taxpayers $194 million over the next 10 years. Secure choice is a common sense solution it's smart for workers, businesses, and New Jersey taxpayers.
Again, I'm asking you to vote yes on A4134 and empower New Jerseyans to save for their futures.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address] [City, State ZIP][Your Email]
