Illinois Secure Choice Alternative

What is the Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program Act?

The Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program is a program offered by the Illinois State Treasurer’s Office to meet the requirements of the Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program Act (820 ILCS 80/). The Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program Act will require employers to supply a savings program to their employees for applicable businesses. To be subject to the Act previously, an employer must have at least 25 or more employees, have been in business over two years, and not offer a qualified savings plan. As of November 1, 2022, those subject to the Act will be expanded to Illinois businesses with between 16 and 24 employees. Enforcement for non-compliance to the Act will take place and applicable businesses will be automatically enrolled into the program after the deadline has passed.

Important details to consider for the Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program Act:
