IS A STATE-RUN RETIREMENT PLAN RIGHT FOR YOU?

IS A STATE-RUN RETIREMENT PLAN RIGHT FOR YOU?

In California, employers who have five or more employees will be required to offer their own workplace retirement savings program in 2023 or be automatically enrolled in a state-run plan called CalSavers. It’s not too late to evaluate your options, however.

Working with a retirement plan specialist to develop a customized plan can offer more control, flexibility and tax benefits. Don’t wait until the last minute to determine whether your state plan offers the most value to you and your employees — the time is now to start the discussion.


Why Should You Offer a Plan?

State-run plans are intended to ensure most employees have access to a workplace retirement savings program, but they can have some notable shortcomings. For example, most states only offer Roth IRAs, which means contributions aren’t tax-deductible. Other drawbacks can include limitations on the amount you can contribute annually and a narrow choice of investment options.


Partnering with Carey and Hanna Tax and Wealth Planners + Avantax Retirement Plan ServicesSM can offer:

• Greater flexibility with account types and investment choices.

• Tax deductibility & potential employer tax credits.

• Higher contribution limits (typical 401(k) plans allow up to $20,500 annually for individuals; $27,000 for those 50 and older).

• Ongoing employee education and the opportunity to work with a financial planner.

• Greater customization around plan design and features including profit sharing.
