Mercer has previously helped highlight the potential extent of the long term savings gap in the US, estimated to be $27.8 trillion at the end of 2015. Longer life spans will cause that number to grow significantly. In this POV we offer several specific policy recommendations to address the urgent question: What should be done now to enable more Americans to retire with confidence? “America’s retirement savings issues won’t be resolved overnight or resolved easily. But the longer we wait to address this issue, the more drastic future actions will need to be,” said Tom Murphy, US Wealth Leader, Mercer.

The paper titled Steps to Address America’s Retirement Security Challenge: A Public Policy Point of View is based on Mercer’s experience working with thousands of US employers. The paper offers several specific policy recommendations, including:
  1. Support retirement security through tax policy
  2. Improve access to retirement plans for more Americans via the workplace
  3. Build on the success of the private retirement system 
  4. Remove impediments to employers for maintaining defined benefit pension plans
