Many Americans will need some additional source of retirement savings to supplement Social Security. Only about half of private-sector workers participate in employer-sponsored retirement plans, and still many of them aren’t saving enough.

Could technology, new business models, and different plan designs help address this gap? What can regulators do to help expand access while maintaining participant protections? On October 21, the Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) brought together private-sector innovators and federal officials who are trying to expand access and participation in workplace retirement plans to address these important and challenging issues.
