More working New Yorkers will have an easy and effective way to save for their future thanks to the state’s newly-enacted Secure Choice Savings Plan.

Yesterday was the due date for comments on a rule proposed by the U.S. Department of Labor that would protect people with 401(k)s and IRAs from conflicts of interest in the financial services industry.
Let’s face it, for most of us one of the biggest obstacles to saving is that sometimes there isn’t enough paycheck at the end of the month.
