We Need Your Help to Ensure Employees Have a Secure Retirement

Are you a small business owner or employee? Read on.

We need your help.

State lawmakers are considering a new bill right now – New Mexico Saves, Senate Bill 392 – that would help small businesses and their employees have a more secure future.

Today, a secure retirement is out of reach for thousands of New Mexicans, especially those who work for themselves or small businesses. Over 75% of New Mexican small business workers – 204,000 people - do not have a way to save for retirement through their job.

Under New Mexico Saves, employers will have access to an easy, low-cost state-facilitated retirement savings option and a new online marketplace where you can easily find and compare retirement savings plans for your employees.

AARP is pushing state lawmakers to pass New Mexico Saves to help build a stronger future, but New Mexico lawmakers need to hear from small business owners and employees that would benefit from these retirement savings options.

Please take a few minutes to share your story on how New Mexico Saves can help you have a more secure future.

What barriers do you face in offering a retirement savings plan? Why is it important for you and your employees to be able to save for the future? How could offering a retirement savings program help you gain a competitive edge?

We will be selecting stories to share with state lawmakers as part of our efforts to fight for New Mexico Saves. On behalf of yourself, your employees and the thousands of New Mexican private-sector workers that don’t have a way to save for the future at work, please share your story today in the box below. 

 

Your personal story will make all the difference.

Dear [Decision Maker],

Most small business owners want to help their employees save for the future, but say it's too hard and expensive to setup a plan for themselves and their workers.

Today, a secure retirement is out of reach for thousands of New Mexicans, especially those who work for themselves or small businesses. Over 75 percent of New Mexican small business workers, 204,000 people, - do not have a way to save for retirement through their job.

Under New Mexico Saves, Senate Bill 392, employers will have access to an easy, low-cost state-facilitated retirement savings option and a new online marketplace where you can easily find and compare retirement savings plans for your employees.




I urge you to support SB392, the New Mexico Saves Act, to ensure that the thousands of New Mexicans who currently don't have access to a retirement savings plan through their work, get the opportunity to retire -- knowing they can do so with a secure financial future.

Sincerely,
