The legislation, which was included in Division T of the Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2023 (H.R. 2617), builds on the foundation laid by the 2019 Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act to further improve upon the success of the private employer-based retirement system by making it easier for businesses to offer retirement plans and for individuals to save for retirement.
