Jackson County Oregon Employer Council (OEC) Invites you to Attend A Training Seminar
We have a retirement savings problem
We’re not saving enough for retirement. Without adequate savings, families must make tough deci-sions about housing, medicine, and food. Lack of savings also costs taxpayers, straining our public services. More than 1 million workers in Oregon don’t have a retirement savings option through their job, making it all the harder to save.
OregonSaves can help
Starting in July 2017, workers in Oregon will have a new, easy way to save for retirement. The State of Oregon created OregonSaves for all workers who do not have a retirement savings option through their job. It allows employees to save part of their paycheck in their own personally managed ac-count. Oregonians work hard for their money, and it’s time their money went to work for them.
This free seminar will help you, as an employer, prepare for the program.
The seminar is targeted toward business owners, payroll managers and human resource managers.
