State-Run Retirement Savings Plans are a Win-Win, According to Segal Consulting

Retirement Security for Private Workers and Medicaid Savings for States

NEW YORK--()--Next week, the Senate will consider a rollback on regulations that allow states to set up retirement plans for the tens of millions of private sector workers that are not covered. Segal Consulting estimates that in addition to private sector workers improving their retirement security, the savings resulting from these plans could be $5 billion in state Medicaid expenditures if implemented nationwide.

Segal’s new infographic shows just how much each state could save, and lists key considerations for states looking to embark on expanding retirement access for private sector employees. The infographic provides a summary of key points from the report released by Segal earlier this year.
