Illinois Secure Choice to Provide Financial Security to More Employees

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Starting in November, Illinois’ new retirement savings program, Illinois Secure Choice, will be expanding to more businesses. In November, businesses with 25-99 employees that don’t offer retirement plans must participate in the program.  The program allows workers to save for retirement through automatic payroll deductions into an individual retirement account.  Employees remain in control of their account even if they change jobs and there is no cost to employers.

Larger Illinois businesses already participate while those with fewer than 25 employees may choose to opt in.  An estimated more than 1.2 million Illinois workers are eligible.
