Abstract

Navigating the retirement system is not easy for many workers, in the U.S. or abroad. Following several other countries, we advocate creating a retirement dashboard for the United States to help savers manage their retirement preparations. A dashboard would include an online registry letting each worker track their retirement accounts and benefits. It could also offer services such as recovering and consolidating lost accounts, projecting future income, or even providing or referring unbiased financial advice to users. A dashboard would need to overcome obstacles but could materially improve retirement prospects for many American workers.
