A Message From the Editor

While the sweeping SECURE 2.0 legislation is the most extensive update in retirement law in the past 15 years, there are distinct areas that Congress should address for a more effective retirement income system, says the Brookings Institution. One of those areas is the racial and ethnic income gap. How to close that gap? Brookings recommends adopting auto IRAs and expanding auto-enrollment and escalation in employer plans.
