State IRA Programs National Symposium

April 22 | Webcast (Rebroadcast)

Show tabs

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 rebroadcasting the all-day national webcast symposium on April 22. Learn 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. You will gain a better understanding of the partnership with the private sector and the success of another similar program that many of your clients are familiar with, the state 529 plans. The road being embarked upon is a well-worn path to success. You will hear from thought leaders that were the genesis of the program, learn about what programs exist outside of the United States to create successful retirement outcomes for citizens of other countries, and what the future looks like in America to protect and create lifetime income streams for the participants.

You will hear from the thought leaders at the state level in Oregon, California, and Illinois to hear about their compliance issues you and your clients need to be aware of.

All CalCPA Education Foundation conferences include free Wi-Fi, discounted parking, continental breakfast, networking lunch and afternoon refreshments.
