Among America’s founding principles is the ideal that each citizen’s ability to succeed – to achieve financial security, to do better than the generation that came before – should be as limitless as individual potential. In effort to realize this founding principle for all Americans, we at the Initiative on Financial Security have worked to create a comprehensive “cradle-to-grave” savings policy. Savings for Life features a series of four policy recommendations for increasing financial security for all Americans – across income levels, and at every stage of life.  It is the culmination of more than two years of a groundbreaking, bipartisan collaboration with CEOs from the financial services sector and public policy experts to identify market-based strategies for more Americans to save, invest and own.
