When so many Americans are struggling, when income and wealth gaps are so apparent, when hope and action are needed, policy makers, business leaders, educators, philanthropists, and others must step-up and tackle our most difficult challenges. One such challenge is retirement insecurity, a fear and reality for millions across our country. Social Security, investments, pensions, defined contribution plans, and other savings mechanisms all play a role in retirement readiness, but they are simply inadequate to provide financially secure retirements for every American. RISE is a bold plan to ensure that every American child can look forward to a financially secure retirement. This is the time for big ideas. RISE offers the opportunity to narrow gaps and change the financial futures of future American generations.
