Washington, D.C., June 13, 2007 -- Today, a coalition of the country's largest employers called for a new option to deliver retirement and health security, and opened the door for a nation-wide discussion about how better to deliver benefits to all Americans, as well as respond to the needs of employers.

ERIC unveiled its "New Benefit Platform for Life Security" at a Washington, DC briefing. The Platform provides guiding principles and a new approach to complement the current voluntary employee benefit system.
