What is the Oregon Retirement Savings Plan?

The Oregon Legislature passed House Bill 2960 which requires all employers to provide employees access to a retirement plan. The State of Oregon is rolling out their plan option called OregonSaves. We say you should stick with a retirement plan with a more proven roll-out plan than previous state pension plans.
