CalSavers - California State Mandated Retirement Plan (Live Webinar)

Speaker: Eric Petersen, Pension Consultant, Hicks Pension Services

The state of California is forcing most businesses in the state to sponsor a retirement plan.  For businesses who currently do not sponsor a qualified retirement plan, the state is offering a plan called CalSavers. This mandate forces businesses to take action.  CalSavers has several requirements which could be difficult  for businesses to comply with on their own.  The good news is that there are other options.

This presentation will detail the requirements of the CalSavers program and explore the alternatives.  Our hope is that the audience leaves with a mandate of their own to educate the businesses that they are in contact with and help guide them to the proper retirement plan that works best for them.  There will be a massive need for consulting on this complicated mandate and the attendees to this presentation should walk away with enough information to help with this consulting effort.

Eric Petersen brings a qualified background to Hicks Pension Services. After receiving an M.B.A. from San Diego State University, Eric spent four years as a plan administrator.  As an administrator Eric established himself as an expert in the intricacies of IRS tax code as it relates to qualified plans.  He also has received accreditation from The National Institute for Pension Administrators.
