When Retirement Savings Meets Economic Crisis: Lessons From COVID-19

The health crisis of COVID-19 and subsequent effects on the U.S. economy have propelled to the spotlight the issue of financial security at the household level. Issues like paid leave, dependent care, housing instability, student loan debt, and debt collections were challenges to tens of millions of families across America long before the pandemic emerged – and if we don’t make key changes, they will dampen the economic recovery of our nation. This digital event is the ninth in a series that will explore why addressing key household financial challenges is needed to make an equitable economic recovery.
