To the Editor:
As a constituent of the 32nd State Senate District, I am writing to urge state Sen. Pam Althoff to support Senate Bill 2758 – the Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program.
We’re facing a retirement security crisis in this state with fewer and fewer workers having access to a retirement savings plan at work.
We need to encourage private savings so that people can be financially secure in retirement and not rely on government programs to get by.
Senate Bill 2758 would do just that. Social Security is not enough to live on, and Illinois workers deserve to have the option of saving for retirement through their jobs.
