It’s time for a Retirement Bill of Rights

Every American worker should be able to retire with dignity. Achieving security for millions starts with a call for bold, urgent change – from us, and from you, too.

For too many of us, it’s hard to know we’ll have enough income in retirement – even when we’ve worked hard and saved consistently. And when millions of our families, colleagues and neighbors aren’t financially secure, we’re all affected. But together? We can change that.

What workers can do

Look forward to every day in retirement

Being prepared for secure retirement income means first knowing where you stand. You might be among the 55 million Americans who don’t have access to a retirement savings plan at work.1 Or you might already be a TIAA participant making regular contributions. Either way, we can help you get on track to the secure retirement income that leads to the dignified retirement everyone deserves.

What employers can do

Employees need your help

Four in ten U.S. households risk running short of money in retirement – and high earners aren’t exempt.2 Ensuring your retirement plan includes guaranteed lifetime income that employees can count on helps them live better now, and after their careers end.

We can help you review your plan’s investment lineup to be sure you’re providing them the tools they need for confident, meaningful retirement.
