Low-Income Workers and Retirement Contributions

February 8, 2012

Abstract

Amid much conversation about the future of Social Security, personal retirement savings are becoming more critical than ever before. Many employers contribute to their workers' retirement savings, but who benefits most from this and how much do these people lose in wages as a result of these contributions? Karen Smith, a senior research associate at the Urban Institute's Program on Retirement Policy, talks about employer contributions to retirement savings, who benefits most, and who loses the most wages in return for retirement contributions.
