CalChamber's Conversations About CalSavers
CalChamber will be cohosting three different Zoom events with the State Treasurer Fiona Ma’s office to discuss the CalSavers Retirement Program, and the deadline for small employers to register their employees.  The three dates are as follows:

State law requires employers of five or more employees to register for CalSavers if they do not offer a retirement plan. There are no fees for employers and it’s designed to be easy for employers and employees alike. Eligible employers must register by June 30, 2022. You can register by clicking one of the links above. If you have any questions please let us know or you can email CalSavers’ Outreach Director, Jonathan Herrera, at jherrera@treasurer.ca.gov.
