"
A-A-R-P INDIANA" IS URGING THE "GENERAL ASSEMBLY" TO PASS THE "HOOSIER EMPLOYEE-RETIREMENT OPTIONS"-BILL--DURING ITS UPCOMING SESSION.  THE BILL WAS WRITTEN BY STATE-REPRESENTATIVE SEAN EBERHART...

(EBERHART):
"
MORE THAN ONE-MILLION HOOSIER-WORKERS CURRENTLY DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO AN EMPLOYER-SPONSORED RETIREMENT-SAVINGS PLAN.  HOWEVER, WE KNOW THAT PEOPLE ARE 15-TIMES MORE LIKELY TO SAVE--IF THEY CAN DO SO THROUGH WORK.  UNDER 'HERO', SMALL-BUSINESS OWNERS, LIKE MYSELF--AS WELL AS THE SELF-EMPLOYED--WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO AN ONLINE PORTAL, WHERE THEY CAN CHOOSE AMONG PRIVATE RETIREMENT-PLANS THAT HAVE BEEN VETTED BY THE STATE.  EACH EMPLOYEE WOULD HAVE A CHOICE ABOUT WHETHER TO PARTICIPATE--AND THE ACCOUNTS WOULD BE PORTABLE.  A RECENT 'A-A-R-P'-SURVEY OF SMALL-BUSINESS OWNERS CONCLUDED THAT THERE'S BOTH A REAL NEED AND WIDESPREAD SUPPORT FOR 'HERO'--THROUGHOUT INDIANA."
