What is CalSavers,
and are you compliant?
CalSavers, Retirement Plans and Your Company
In 2016, the California legislature passed a law designed to encourage employees to save for retirement. It mandates that employers with 5 or more employees provide a qualified retirement saving program for their employees. All registered employers must either register for CalSavers or implement a qualifying retirement plan.
What are the CalSavers eligibility requirements?
California employers are required by state law to facilitate CalSavers if they don't offer an employer-sponsored retirement plan and have five or more employees*.
All eligible employers can register are any time prior to their registration deadline.
*Employer eligibility and compliance deadlines are based on the average employees you reported to the Employment Development Department for the four previous DE9C filings.
Compliance dates for different employer sizes.
Fees for non-compliance : $250 per employee.
