The Pew Charitable Trusts and the California Budget & Policy Center held an expert convening on Thursday, November 17, about California’s Secure Choice, the new retirement savings program that was passed by the California Legislature and signed into law by Governor Jerry Brown. During this half-day event, participants discussed what this state-mandated retirement plan for the private sector will mean for employees and employers, explored key implementation questions, and looked at how California’s retirement savings challenge compares with that in other states.
