Washington, D.C. Forum Establishes Auto Portability as a Leading Public Policy Initiative04.05.2017

The Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) estimates that the current and coming generations of retirement savers would have an additional $2 trillion, in today’s dollars, at age 65 if auto portability is fully implemented. The extra dollars would be the result of preserving assets that are currently leaking out of plans due to workers cashing out their 401(k) accounts when changing jobs. These findings are a product of EBRI’s Retirement Security Projection Model®, which was used to create an ‘auto portability scenario’ in which every participant consolidates their savings in their new employer plan every time they change jobs, i.e. all participants arrive at age 65 with one account and leakage is limited to hardship withdrawals. The institute’s latest research underscores the value of auto portability as a solution for helping to bridge the U.S. retirement savings shortfall.
