So sorry, I think the answer is no. Origin does not back up Sims 4 saves for you.

If you want to save the Sims 4 progress, you should navigate to the Sims 4 saves location and back up the saves folder to a USB drive or cloud space. 

Here is the Sims 4 saves location for you:

For Windows/Mac PC - Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 4\saves

After backing up the saves folder from the old computer, now you can: 

  • Install Origin and Sims 4 on the new PC
  • Go to the Sims 4 saves location on your new computer
  • Replace the save folder with a copy of your old saves

Now run the Sims 4 on the new PC, and you can load the old game progress successfully.

After answering your question, I have a little suggestion for you. Sims 4 is a highly playable game that supports you to add various mods. It can be very frustrating if your saves disappear for various reasons. So be sure always to back up your game save. And EaseUS Todo Backup Home can be of great use in this regard. 

It is an extremely practical backup software. When Origin cannot provide corresponding backup functions, EaseUS Todo Backup Home can automatically backup your Sims 4 saves easily. 

You can set a fixed backup time and backup mode that you like and save copies in the free cloud space provided by EaseUS. With its help, you can quickly complete the backup and restore of Sims 4.
