California Retirement Plan Mandate FAQs
What is the retirement mandate?
When does the mandate take effect?
All California employers will soon be required to offer a retirement savings plan. You can use the state sponsored CalSavers plan, or a custom private plan such as a 401(k).
Your deadline depends on the number of employees that you have.
Which employers are affected by this mandate?
All California employers with 5 or more employees will have to abide by this mandate.
Can we provide you with 401(k) that follows the mandate?
At California Business Benefits we can provide any California based employer with a 401(k) or other retirement plan that is designed to be cost effective for you and provide great benefits for your employees.
Why a 401(k) instead of CalSavers?
The main benefit of choosing a 401(k) is that the plan is completely in your control, whereas with CalSavers the plan is much more regulated by the state. For example with CalSavers you are not able to do an employer contribution match. A feature that many employees look for when choosing a company to work for. With a 401(k) you can easily offer an employer contribution match. Also note that all employer contribution matching is tax deductible.
Also, as the employer, by opening a new 401(k) plan you are eligible for a tax credit up to $500 per year up to three years. This tax credit is not eligible to CalSaver participants
Another huge benefit of choosing a 401(k) is the ability to create a customizable investment plan for participants. These plans can be customized depending upon the employees investment goals and risk tolerance. On the other hand, CalSavers is more of a "on-size-fits-all" program with little customization.
