Comptroller Kevin Lembo announced on Monday that the Connecticut Retirement Security Authority has selected Sumday, a subsidiary of BNY Mellon, to act as the programís administrator following a competitive bidding process.

Sumday was chosen based on their administrative capabilities, relationships within the financial sector and commitment to building a successful retirement security program in partnership with the Authority. A final contract will be signed subject to successful negotiations and the program is anticipated to launch in earnest before the end of the year.

Comptroller Lembo said: "Connecticut workers deserve financial security in retirement. Ensuring they have adequate savings is both a moral imperative and smart fiscal policy. The selection of Sumday to administer the program brings us one step closer to that goal. Iím grateful for all of the contributions of my colleagues on the Authority that led to this decision."

Tom Sennett, Vice Chair, Connecticut Retirement Security Authority said: "Sumday put forth a very thoughtful, competitive proposal and the Authority is excited to get a finalized contract in place. It is important that we stand up this program quickly so Connecticut workers can begin saving and enjoy the secure retirement they deserve."

The Connecticut Retirement Security Authority is charged with developing retirement savings options for the nearly 600,000 Connecticut workers who are not offered a plan through their employer. Comptroller Lembo was recently named the Chair of the Authority by Governor Ned Lamont.

Sumday Administration, LLC, is an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation.
