SECURE 2.0 Webinar Series: SECURE 2.0 and Financial Wellness Benefits
SECURE 2.0—which expands on the Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement Act of 2019—has gotten attention for its retirement plan incentives and mandates. But the legislation was also designed to attack some of the biggest financial stresses for everyday Americans, such as by allowing for matching contributions toward student loan debt and encouraging emergency saving. These are just two new benefits in the law that employers may use to help boost employees’ overall financial wellness and facilitate saving for retirement.
Join PLANSPONSOR, PLANADVISER and a panel of industry experts as they review:
• SECURE 2.0 provisions related to employee financial wellness;
• Ways plan sponsors can implement new benefits, and how advisers can help them; and
• How to determine the best benefits for a plan sponsor’s unique employee group.
