calcpa.org/conference States are taking the lead to address the retirement savings crisis by introducing innovative new public-private partnerships to help provide private sector workers with simple, easily accessible, low-cost ways to save. Since 2012, more than 40 states have introduced proposals to address the problem of retirement insecurity. Of these, 10 states and one city have enacted new programs and, by the end of 2018, three of the new auto-IRA programs — California, Illinois, and Oregon — will have begun enrolling workers. In all, there are three distinct types of programs. The California Society of CPAs is hosting an all-day national webcast symposium about how these state programs are transforming the retirement savings landscape and what you need to know from a compliance and program perspective for the benefit of your clients.
