Enhancing Latino Retirement Readiness in California

Research Report

Using Census data and feedback from focus groups with Latino consumers, this report assesses the retirement readiness of Latinos in California and the potential for California to serve as a model for states seeking to extend retirement savings plans to private sector workers whose employers do not offer them.

California was selected because it reflects the future demographic makeup of the United States and it is currently designing a statewide retirement savings program for individuals who do not have a retirement plan at work–the largest share of whom are Latino.
