NEW YORK -- 

MetLife, Inc. (NYSE: MET) issued the following statement today from Graham Cox, executive vice president and head of MetLife’s Retirement & Income Solutions group, on the SECURE Act being signed into law as part of the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020:

“We applaud the enactment of the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement (SECURE) Act of 2019. This legislation modernizes the nation’s retirement system by expanding access to solutions that will help workers live more confidently in retirement. It’s no longer enough that employees save for retirement ˗ they need help understanding how to generate a steady level of income. Through the provisions of the SECURE Act, employees can better understand the potential danger of outliving their savings and reduce the risk that they run out of money in retirement.”
