Thank Your Member of Congress

On December 20, President Trump signed into law H.R. 1865, the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2020. This legislation included the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act.

The SECURE Act is a big win for retirement savers. It means:

  • More than 700,000 workers at small businesses will save for retirement through their employer.
  • More than 4 million workers in private-sector pension plans will not be at risk of losing future benefits.
  • 1,400 religiously affiliated organizations are able to keep their defined contribution plans.
  • Gold Star families will not face additional taxation of their survivor benefits.

The SECURE Act was a bipartisan, bicameral bill that demonstrated that through consensus and collaboration, important retirement policy can be achieved and even more is possible. Please take a moment to thank your Member of Congress for voting to “SECURE” the financial well-being of so many Americans.
