“One size fits all” does not apply to retirement plan providers and sponsors. Every business has its own unique intricacies that dictate which provider will best suit them. That’s where a true independent retirement plan advisor can help you when considering the pro’s and con’s of each provider.
We understand what you’re looking for:
» LESS WORK
» LOWER COSTS
» LESS FIDUCIARY RISK / REMAIN COMPIANT
» SUPERIOR EDUCATION FOR PARTICIPANTS
What is CalSavers?
CalSavers is California’s new state-run retirement plan. The CalSavers Retirement Savings Program first launched in November 2018 with a pilot program and became eligible to all employers beginning on July 1, 2019.
New legislation mandates any employer with at least five employees that doesn’t already offer a workplace retirement savings vehicle to either begin offering one via the private market or to provide their employees access to CalSavers.
The mandatory registration dates for employers will phase-in yearly, based on the number of full-time and part-time employees working for the employer. The following deadlines are based on the average number of employees as reported to the California Employment Development Department over a four-quarter period ending December 31.
June 30, 2020: Employers with at least 100 employees.
June 30, 2021: Employers with 50-99 employees.
June 30, 2022: Employers with 5-49 employees.
Retirement Plan Benchmarking
We can show you how your plan stacks up against its peers when it comes to fees, performance, and participation rates. Our team is unbiased; they will present to you a variety of highly reputable providers that fit your company’s goals and objectives specifically.
We provide training workshops and webinars for all of your participants, giving them personal insight into how their plan works, how they can make changes, and what they can expect.
Plan Monitoring and Reporting
We will meet periodically with the plan’s management committee to assess whether the plan is performing as expected, as well as provide access to regular plan performance reports. Emphasis is placed on keeping up to date with Employment Retirement Income Security Act (ERISA) and Department of Labor (DOL) regulations, and effecting any necessary changes in order to stay compliant.
The DOL has deemed all plan fiduciaries are personally liable for ERISA violations that cause plan losses. Now, more than ever, it is important to be aware of and understand your fiduciary responsibilities. We will educate you and keep you informed!
