Encouraging Americans to Save Act

This bill sets forth provisions to provide matching payments for retirement savings and Individual Retirement Account (IRA) contributions for individuals who have attained age 18, excluding dependents and full-time students. Specifically, it allows an enhanced 50% tax credit, up to $3,000, for deductible retirement savings contributions and for IRA contributions.

The bill also directs the Department of the Treasury to establish a permanent program to be known as the MyRA Program to allow individuals or employers to establish a Roth IRA. Treasury must also take steps to increase public awareness of the benefits of this bill and the MyRA Program in particular.
