On May 6, 2021, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit ruled that California’s CalSavers mandated payroll deduction IRA program for employees whose employers don’t provide a retirement program is not preempted by ERISA.  Understanding the details of CalSavers will help you be able to compare it to ERISA plans for your clients. 

This 1 hour session will provide attendees with a real-time update on the CalSavers Retirement Savings Program. Discussion will include:

  • Recap of CalSavers mandate, exempting plan types, and deadlines
  • Overview of CalSavers features
  • Status of Implementation/Participation Update
  • Q&A
