For Immediate Release

Washington, DC – The following statement should be attributed to Aliya Robinson, Senior Vice President of Retirement and Compensation Policy, The ERISA Industry Committee (ERIC):

“The ERISA Industry Committee applauds the passage of the SECURE Act and the bipartisan effort to provide greater retirement security. In particular, we appreciate the permanent fix to allow workers to continue accruing benefits in frozen pension plans, the extension of the required minimum distribution rules, and help for student debt repayment. The SECURE Act is an important first step and we look forward to continue working with all interested parties to bring additional flexibility and modernization into the private retirement system.”
