Introducing Colorado SecureSavings
Our Pilot Program is launching soon!
Colorado SecureSavings is a new retirement savings program, created by the Colorado Secure Savings Board in the Colorado Department of the Treasury, that’s coming to Colorado this fall. We’re about to work with a select group of Colorado businesses to take part in an exclusive pilot of the program before it’s officially launched across the state early next year.
If you’re a Colorado employer with five or more employees (who have worked for you for at least 180 days), have been in business for two or more years, and you do not currently offer a retirement savings program to any employees, you can register when the program officially launches in 2023! In the meantime, learn more about the program today and prepare for what’s to come next year.
Colorado SecureSavings is good for you and your employees
Colorado SecureSavings gives businesses like yours a convenient way to help employees save for their future, and it can benefit you, too. Employer-sponsored retirement plans can help improve worker satisfaction, increase productivity, and reduce employee stress.1
Here in Colorado, nearly 940,000 workers have no employer-sponsored retirement savings plan. Colorado SecureSavings was created by law to meet this urgent need. Once enrolled in Colorado SecureSavings, employees can contribute to a Roth Individual Retirement Account (IRA) directly from their paychecks and access tools to help them reach their financial goals.
