WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Insured Retirement Institute (IRI) issued the following statement following the Senate’s confirmation of former Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh as Secretary of Labor.

“IRI congratulates Secretary Walsh for his confirmation as President Biden’s Labor Secretary,” said Wayne Chopus, IRI President and CEO. “With the nation facing a retirement crisis that has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic, there is much work to be done. We stand ready to work with Secretary Walsh on common-sense, bipartisan legislation and policies to help our nation’s workers and retirees achieve economic equity by strengthening their own financial security and protecting their income to sustain them throughout their retirement years. And we look forward to partnering with Secretary Walsh and his team to complete the implementation of the landmark retirement legislation passed by Congress in 2019, the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Security (SECURE) Act.”
