By this November, all Illinois employers with 16 or more employees will need to offer their own retirement program. Fortunately, there is a no cost option for small business owners who can't take on the fiduciary or administrative burdens of a traditional retirement savings program.Join the Director of Illinois Secure Choice Christine Cheng and Small Business Majority to learn about the state-run Illinois Secure Choice program and how to sign up yourself and your employees before the November 1 deadline. During this event, we will discuss upcoming deadlines for enrollment and penalties for those who do not enroll by the deadline. Additionally, we will cover how your employees can easily opt-out of the program.
