California Requires Retirement Program

California Requires Employee-Based Retirement Program

The State of California requires all businesses with 5 or more employees to offer an employee-based retirement plan. You can establish your own employee plan by working with a financial advisor, or be forced to use a State-run and operated program.

At First Northern Advisors, we always have your best interest in mind.

Small business owners don’t always offer a retirement plan for their employees, but that has changed as of June 30, 2022. Craft a retirement plan for your employees that works for your business instead of being forced into a state-run program that may not be your best fit.

Let’s discuss your options today to help avoid the State’s non-compliant fee of $250 per employee.*
