What you may not know is that a retirement plan is among the most sought after benefits for American workers, second only to health insurance.

Three reasons to get started today:

  1. Offering a retirement plan helps attract and retain top talent. With pre-tax savings, your employees can make a positive impact to their paycheck now, while securing their future.
  2. The IRS pays you to save with credits and deductions for offering a retirement plan. If you just started offering a plan, your company may qualify for a business tax credit of up to $500 per year for the first three years of the plan, cutting the cost of your plan by as much as half.
  3. Your generosity will create savings. If you choose to include an employer match or profit-sharing contribution, you can deduct your share of the combined contribution limit of $53,000 per employee for 2016. That can add up to real savings for your business!
