The Alliance for Retired Americans (ARA) is hosting a day-long symposium called “Preparing for Retirement: Individual and Collective Efforts” at the AFL-CIO’s headquarters in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, Oct. 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET.
The symposium will bring together government officials, labor movement leaders, policy experts, Social Security and pension advocates, academics, economists, attorneys and people who work in retirement security and social insurance.
The event is hosted by ARA President and retired IAM General Secretary-Treasurer Robert Roach Jr.
Every day, 10,000 Americans turn 65, and our country needs to prepare for the retirement of these workers. Right now, a majority of U.S. households have no retirement savings.
This symposium is intended to educate workers about planning for retirement and how retirement security can be strengthened.
Expected speakers include AFL-CIO President Liz Shuler, AFL-CIO Secretary-Treasurer and ARA Executive Vice President Fred Redmond, House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-N.Y. / invited) and U.S. Rep. John Larson (D-Conn.).
Richard Fiesta, Executive Director of the Alliance for Retired Americans, will present on Social Security Ins and Outs. Speakers will discuss the state of retirement security, the challenges of traditional pensions, and the legislative prospects to expand Social Security.
