Auto-retirement investing: Will it be enough? Adding an automatic enrollment, allocation and escalation features to retirement savings plans may not be enough as more data will be needed to prove that these strategies help workers boost their nest eggs, writes Charles Rotblut, vice president with the American Association of Individual Investors. While these options are better than plans that have no mechanisms in place to prompt workers to save, "there is some evidence suggesting employees in plans with an auto-enrollment feature are not saving enough," Rotblut writes.
