Illinois Secure Choice
The Illinois Secure Choice program is a state-sponsored retirement program. It provides a Roth Individual Retirement Arrangement (IRA) to employees who do not have access to a retirement savings plan through work. It provides a simple way to automatically save a part of each paycheck into your own IRA. The account stays with you if you change jobs and allows for customizable savings rate and investment elections to fit your savings needs.
Once you receive notification from Illinois Secure Choice, you have three options:
- Register – After you’ve set up your account, you have the ability to customize your savings and investment elections, add beneficiaries, make a withdrawal, or manage your personal information at any time.
- Do Nothing – If no action is taken, you will be automatically enrolled with the default savings and investment elections after 30 days.
- Opt Out – If you do not want to participate in the program, you can opt out at any time online, by filling out the Opt Out form, or calling the Client Service Team.
