Disrupt Disparities in Retirement Readiness

Bob and Sheila Hoerle Lecture Hall, Room UL105, University Center
General Public 

After a lifetime of work, everyone deserves a dignified retirement. But our retirement system leaves a majority of New York workers without access to an employer-sponsored retirement account. Worse, some groups are more vulnerable than others and are at an even greater risk of falling into poverty as they retire.

SCEPA’s Retirement Equity Lab and AARP NY invite you to an expert panel discussion on disrupting the racial and ethnic disparities among New Yorkers’ retirement readiness.

5:00 PM - 6:00 PM: Reception with food and bar (Room UL 103)
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM: Presentation and panel discussion (Room UL 105)

We invite you to a 5 pm reception with refreshments before the panel discussion. At 6 pm, ReLab’s economists will present new data describing New Yorkers’ retirement savings level by race, class, and income. The presentation will be followed by a panel discussion on possible solutions with elected officials, policy experts, advocates, and local community leaders.

Join us in paving the road to an inclusive solution to New York’s retirement crisis.

Presented by SCEPA’s Retirement Equity Lab and AARP NY.
