Bipartisan support for legislation is hard to come by these days, but both Democrats and Republicans agree that Americans need to better prepare for retirement. This bill includes automatic enrollment into 401(k)s.

The House Ways and Means Committee has a new proposal aimed at fixing retirement for Americans.

The Ways and Means Committee introduced bipartisan legislation on Tuesday that aims to fix some of the problems individuals face when preparing for retirement. The proposal, known as the Securing a Strong Retirement Act of 2020, was introduced by Chairman and Democratic Rep. Richard Neal of Massachusetts and ranking member and Republican Rep. Kevin Brady of Texas.

“This bill will help Americans approach old age with the confidence and dignity they deserve after decades of hard work and sacrifice,” Neal said in a statement announcing the bill.There are a handful of provisions in the latest proposal, including automatic enrollment into 401(k) plans, financial incentives for small businesses to offer retirement accounts and the expansion of the existing federal tax credit for contributions to a retirement account.

Other parts of the proposal include:This legislation would be the latest attempt at improving retirement security in the country. Congress passed the SECURE Act in December, which increased the age for required minimum distributions to 72 from 70 ½ and allowed greater flexibility for 401(k) plans to include annuities. The SECURE Act also eliminated the stretch IRA, where beneficiaries of retirement accounts could prolong the distribution of funds from inherited accounts, and widened access to multiple employer plans for small businesses.

“Our legislation will make it easier for folks to save, protect Americans’ retirement accounts, and give workers more peace of mind as they plan for the future,” Brady said.Many Americans already needed help preparing for retirement, but the pandemic has made it worse. Millions have lost jobs, seen a reduction in hours and wages or became ill (or had a loved one become ill). All workers — both low- and high-earners — will feel the impacts of the pandemic on their retirement security, either through short-term wage losses or through investment returns, according to a report from the New School’s Schwartz Center for Economic Policy Analysis.

So, someone asks: What would she want to be in her next existence? She pauses for a brief but weighty moment, as if to reflect on the 99-year scope of her life, and then laughs. She loves people, and she revels in hard work, so the answer seems obvious to her:
