No Pension, No Problem: OregonSaves Grows


Would you take a full-time job with a place that did not offer some kind of retirement plan?  It won't be necessary in Oregon soon. 

Because the state continues to roll out the OregonSaves program, a plan to put some money away for retirement at a job that offers neither pension nor 401k-style plan. 

Businesses and individuals can take part, and the Oregon Retirement Savings Board oversees the program.  State Treasurer Tobias Read visits to talk about the features of OregonSaves.
