HARRISBURG – Bipartisan legislation has been introduced that would allow PA workers who currently have no opportunity to save for retirement at their place of employment the ability to join a voluntary employee retirement savings program. The program, called Keystone Saves, would allow employees to contribute to an IRA through an automatic payroll deduction. It’s designed to maximize employee choice and control while minimizing any burden on employers. Under House Bill 2156, employees could set their own contribution levels, increase or decrease their deductions, and make investment choices. They can also leave the program at any time or opt out altogether. Employees could also choose to use account and investment options selected by the program. The accounts are portable so employees can continue to save if they change jobs, wish to rollover their Keystone Saves account into another retirement plan, or even move their account to a private account manager. The bill is now before the PA House Commerce Committee for consideration.
