On January 26, 2012, SCEPA held a press conference to release the report "Are New Yorkers Ready for Retirement?" The report is the result of a collaborative project with the NYC Comptroller John Liu and is part of a series of reports by the Comptroller meant to shed light on the emerging retirement crisis.

"The deck is becoming increasingly stacked against New Yorkers in their efforts to retire," Teresa Ghilarducci said in a statement. "Fewer New Yorkers have access to the convenience and affordability of employer-sponsored retirement plans. More and more residents now face a choice between retiring into poverty or continuing to work in old age. Without significant policy reforms, the economic tea leaves foretell a decrease in the standard of living for retired New Yorkers."
