WHO WE ARE:
The American Savings Education Council (ASEC) was formed to undertake and encourage initiatives aimed at raising public awareness about what is needed to ensure long-term financial security in retirement successfully. ASEC, a program of the Employee Benefit Research Institute Education and Research Fund (EBRI-ERF), a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is a nonpartisan, non-lobbying council of private and public organizations that does not take positions on specific policy proposals.
