Join us (and share with your members too!) for a webinar on the Illinois Secure Choice: What Small Business Owners Need to Know about the IL State Law September 13 at 2:00 p.m.
Illinois state law now requires that every private-sector employer that has been in business for at least 2 years and that had 5 or more Illinois employees last year must offer their own qualified retirement plan or facilitate the Illinois Secure Choice retirement savings program. In this session, the Illinois State Treasurer’s Office will cover the specifics of the state law and provide an overview of how Illinois Secure Choice works and how easy it is for businesses to facilitate retirement savings for their employees. This session, led by Christine Cheng and Jaimee Niles, is open to chamber professionals and chamber members.
