myRA Simple, Safe & Affordable Retirement Savings Account

Many people want to save, but haven’t found an easy way to get started. According to a 2015 Federal Reserve Report, 31 percent of non-retired people said they have no retirement savings or pension whatsoever. The U.S. Department Treasury developed myRA to make it easy for people to start saving for the future.

myRA is a Roth IRA designed to make retirement saving easier and more accessible — there are

  • No fees – it cost nothing to open an account
  • No risk of losing money – the investment is backed by the US Treasury
  • No minimum contributions – individuals can choose how much they want to save

Join the Thurston Asset Building Coalition this Wednesday, April 26th from 10 – 11 AM for a Free Workshop with Experts from the US Department of the Treasury. They will discuss the benefits of the program for individuals who don’t have access to a workplace retirement savings account, how to help people sign up, and share what other cities are doing to promote/share myRA with residents.

This Free Workshop, which will bring together consumer and financial capability providers in the Olympia / South Sound-area, will also include an informal discussion to explore future outreach strategies to consumers in the state of Washington.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, April 25th to
