A SMART ALTERNATIVE TO SECURE CHOICE SAVINGS
WILL NEW YORK’S RETIREMENT PLAN MANDATE IMPACT YOUR BUSINESS?
VALUE POINT ASSOCIATES CAN HELP
In an effort to help today’s workforce save for a financially-secure future, the state of New York is requiring certain employers to offer some type of retirement plan for their workers.
While joining the state-facilitated plan is an option, it’s not the only option. And it may not be the best choice for you and your employees.
The New York State Secure Choice Savings Program offers a very basic Roth IRA for building retirement savings. But will it really help your employees achieve a secure financial future—or does it just “check the box”?
VPA MAY OFFER A BETTER OPTION FOR YOU AND YOUR EMPLOYEES
At Value Point Associates (VPA), we applaud New York State for helping New Yorkers better prepare for financial security in retirement. But the Secure Choice Savings Program doesn’t offer you and your employees tax advantages, and contributions are limited to just $6,000 per year for individuals under age 50 and $7,000 yearly for those age 50 and over.
A 401(k) plan from Value Point Associates (VPA) offers you and your employees tax advantages, the potential for higher earnings, and the ability to save far more toward retirement. Plus, VPA handles virtually all administrative tasks.
Unlike the Secure Choice plan, contributions to a 401(k) plan are made with pretax dollars and are deductible from your taxable income. Plus, as an employer, you’ll enjoy tax advantages that Secure Choice can’t offer.
Let’s compare the key differences…
