Lincoln Financial Group Congratulates Congress on the Passage of Retirement Legislation That Will Improve the Financial Future of Millions of Americans

December 19, 2019 GMT

RADNOR, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec 19, 2019--

Lincoln Financial Group (NYSE: LNC) today released the following statement from Dennis Glass, president and CEO regarding the inclusion of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act provisions in the appropriations bill that passed Congress this afternoon.

“Today Congress, on a bipartisan basis, took a major step towards improving working Americans’ financial future and helping them achieve better outcomes in retirement. The SECURE Act provisions included in the appropriations legislation clears the way for employers to offer lifetime income benefit options to their employees and helps retirement savers ensure they do not outlive their savings. In addition to the lifetime income enhancements, it will also make it easier for small businesses to band together and provide retirement plans for their employees, which will allow hundreds of thousands of workers to start saving for retirement.

“Lincoln congratulates the broad array of stakeholders in both houses of Congress and the administration who have worked tirelessly to make this common-sense legislation a reality and bring American workers closer to the retirement they envision.”
