More than 900,000 Colorado workers soon will have access to a retirement savings plan through their workplace. Senate Bill 200 recently cleared the Colorado Legislature. Kelli Fritts, associate state director of advocacy for AARP Colorado, said the measure will help the state avoid what she called a retirement crisis.

  A new study by media and analysis firm Corporate Knights reveals that Colorado's Public Employee Retirement Association (PERA) lost over 1.7 billion in retirement savings since 2009 by continuing to invest in fossil fuels. Climate activists hope the new data could convince PERA's Board of Trustees to take divestment action.

Nearly half of private sector workers in Colorado, more than 750,000 people in their prime working years, do not have access to a retirement savings plan at work. The Colorado Secure Savings Plan, a measure expected to be introduced in the state legislature later this month, would allow all workers in the state to put a portion of their paychecks away for retirement.
