1

Register

All Colorado business owners will be able to register when the program officially launches in early 2023.

Things you will NOT be responsible for

  • Setting up your employees’ retirement savings accounts. This happens automatically.

  • Answering questions about Colorado SecureSavings and its investment options, or helping employees choose investments.

  • Managing Colorado SecureSavings investment options and processing employee investment change requests.

  • Processing distributions from employee investment accounts.

  • Managing employee investment account changes. Your employees will be responsible for maintaining their account information and settings if enrolled.
