Freiman, Mukherji and Murphy Bill Establishing Retirement Savings Plan Signed into Law

Creates Automatic Payroll Deduction IRA for Employees Without a Retirement Savings Plan

Saving for the future is becoming easier for many New Jersey workers thanks to a bill sponsored by Assembly Democrats Roy Freiman, Raj Mukherji and Carol A. Murphy that was signed into law today.

The law (A-4134) establishes the "New Jersey Secure Choice Savings Program Act" and creates an automatic enrollment payroll deduction Individual Retirement Account (IRA) for private sector workers without access to a retirement savings plan through their employer. It is designed to promote retirement savings for employees in a convenient, low cost and portable manner.
"When companies do not offer automatic savings deductions, employees are less likely to save," said Freiman (D-Somerset, Mercer, Middlesex, Hunterdon). "In fact, only 5 percent of employees save for retirement on a consistent basis without a payroll deduction. "I am glad to see this bill being enacted into law so we can now encourage more employees to make a bigger investment into their future by saving."

"I fully believe our hard-working residents deserve a living wage that allows them to support their families, and the minimum wage law passed earlier this year does right by the people of New Jersey in helping them to accomplish that. As a next step, I introduced three pieces of legislation to ensure that our employees, along with our small businesses, are thriving under the new law.
