Sign Our Petition! Maine Needs a Retirement Savings Program for ALL Mainers

Posted on 02/17/20

Savings For All Maine Workers

When it comes to the financial security of Maine's future, it doesn't look so rosy. Working households in Maine currently have only $2,500 in retirement savings. That's barely an emergency fund.

Nearly half of all private-sector workers have no access to a retirement program through their employers. That's more than 235,000 working Mainers who can't save a dime for retirement at work.

It doesn't have to be this way. We know that Maine can lead the way, and we know how.

We believe all Maine workers, no matter a small business employee or a big business worker, deserve a chance to automatically save a few dollars out of each paycheck for a more secure future.

Stand with us and sign on to support this effort to make Maine's future more financially secure!

Sign our petition today and urge lawmakers to support LD 594: A Retirement Savings Program for Maine.
