The ACL's Pension Counseling & Information Program consists of six regional pension counseling projects, covering 29 states. The state of Illinois, with 64 million workers and a pension participation rate of 42%, is one of the largest states without an ACL-funded pension counseling project. The Pension Action Center at UMass Boston, which conducts ACL's New England Pension Assistance Project, is currently providing pension counseling services to residents of Illinois with funding from the Retirement Research Foundation. Additional funds are needed to leverage the foundation's funding, in order to ensure that the current provision of services to Illinois residents will be continued. This supplementary funding would be provided for the approved period.
This program is authorized under Title II of the Older Americans Act (OAA) (42 U.S.C. 3032), as amended by the Older Americans Act Amendments of 2006, Public Law 109-365.
