Can Making Family Salient Improve Retirement Contributions? Evidence From Field Experiments in Mexico

We use a large field experiment in Mexico (N=97,149) to document that frames centered on securing the future of one’s family improve the likelihood of retirement contributions, even over and above other commonly effective nudges (loss/gain frame, fresh start, and pennies-a-day) over the short-term and long-term (six-months post-intervention).
