CalSavers: Retirement Made Easy for California Small Businesses – Webinar
Tuesday, January 8 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmNo Cost
Are you unable to afford to offer to your employees a retirement plan? Even yourself?
Have you heard about California’s new portable workplace retirement savings account?
If you’re a small business owner who would like to help your employees access a retirement savings program, at no added cost to your business, join us for an interactive webinar that covers the new CalSavers Retirement Savings Program.
Join the Women’s Business Center at Jefferson Economic Development Institute (JEDI), Mount Shasta Chamber, West Company and Small Business Majority for an interactive statewide webinar that covers the state’s new CalSavers Retirement Savings Program. This program will be a portable workplace retirement savings account for private-sector workers whose employers are unable to offer a retirement plan. The program will be operated by a private third party administrator overseen by the state and the accounts will be funded entirely by modest employee contributions. This means small businesses will be able to help their employees access a retirement savings program at no added cost to their business.
This webinar will cover:
- Why CalSavers is needed
- What we currently know and don’t know about the program
- Employer and employee eligibility for CalSavers
- How the program will work and employer responsibilities
- How to stay informed as CalSavers is implemented
