Please join representatives from California State Treasurer Fiona Ma’s Office and event co-sponsors the Hispanic Chamber-Central Coast, San Benito County Chamber of Commerce and San Benito County Business Council for a business workshop on CalSavers Retirement Savings Plan. The plan is now open to all California employers with five employees or more that currently do not offer a qualified retirement plan.

A new California law requires employers with five employees or more to offer a qualified retirement savings plan to their employees or facilitate access to CalSavers. The law does not require employers to contribute to their employees savings account, but a program must be offered and made available. CalSavers is available at no cost to employers.

Join us for a no-cost informational lunch to find out how you and your employees can benefit from this retirement savings plan. The lunch will be held 12:30-1:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 6 at La Catrina Restaurant, located at 449 San Benito Street in downtown Hollister. To attend, please RSVP via email to camadrecomericohispana@gmail.com or (831) 272-4075.
