New Yorkers need safe and convenient mechanisms to save for old age. Secure pension income helps strengthen the city's financial future by keeping social spending down and older residents' spending power up. However, fewer than half of New York residents have access to a retirement plan at work. Low and decreasing rates of employer sponsorship of retirement plans and the shift from traditional pension plans to 401(k)-type plans are threatening New Yorkers' financial readiness for retirement.
