Top 5 Reasons Ubiquity 401(k) Beats A State Plan

  1. Ubiquity 401(k) 100% complies with every state’s mandate requirements
  2. Ubiquity 401(k) saves more in personal and business taxes than any state plan while lowering taxable income. Additional tax credits are available with us
  3. Ubiquity 401(k)s plug-n-play payroll integration saves time and prevents stress by integrating payroll and automating plan administration 
  4. Only Ubiquity 401(k) plan offers flat fees, not a fee that increases as your retirement balance grows
  5. Ubiquity 401(k) is not tied to the state.  Protect your retirement money by choosing a private option the state cannot touch to pay off special interests

​You can either choose the government-controlled ​option with limited choice or you can choose the better option, the one thousands of your fellow  small business owners have chosen: the Ubiquity 401(k) small business plan. ​

Why have retirement benefits been such an obstacle for small businesses?

Traditionally, 401(k) plans have been designed for the budgets and administrative load of large businesses. These complicated and expensive plans provided by the traditional retirement marketplace overlooked the small business plan market entirely.

In recent years, web-based 401(k) plans that are affordable to businesses of all shapes and sizes have begun to spring up. Some of these plans have low monthly fees and no asset fees, and employers have the option to split costs with their employees, much like group health insurance plans.

Still, these pervasive 401(k) myths exist. According to the 2018 Millennium Trust Small Business Retirement Survey, 45% of business owners not offering a retirement plan had not even researched looking into one. The assumption by these business owners was often that plans were too expensive or that their employees didn’t really care about having access to one.

What states have passed retirement legislation?

In an attempt to help the workforce save for retirement, state governments have stepped up to the plate. Since 2012, 30 states have introduced some form of retirement legislation.

So far, 10 states have enacted a government-sponsored retirement savings program: California, Connecticut, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Vermont, and Washington. But not everyone is tackling the issue of the retirement crisis the same way. The intention of the state retirement mandates is to level the playing field so that everyone has a more equal footing.

While all the state legislation focuses on retirement readiness and financial security, how each state goes about it can vary.

Mandatory Individual Retirement Accounts

In California, Oregon, Illinois, Maryland, Connecticut, New Jersey, and the city of Seattle, governments are attempting to close the savings gap by mandating a retirement savings vehicle for private-sector employees who do not have access to an employer-sponsored plan.

Businesses in these states have two options: offer an eligible retirement plan from a private provider or enroll in the state run retirement option. Once a business is enrolled, employees who do not opt-out of the program automatically will be enrolled in a payroll deduct Roth individual retirement account, aka Roth IRA.

In these state-run auto-IRAs, retirement contributions come directly out of worker’s paychecks. These employees are able to save up to the IRA maximum contribution limit of $6,000 per year (with an additional $1000 in catch-up contributions if they are 50 or older). The default contribution rate varies from state to state but usually starts at a default rate of between 3-5% of the employee’s income withheld from each paycheck and deposited into the account. Employees have the right to adjust or cancel that contribution at any time.

How does a state-mandated IRA compare with a small business 401(k) plan?

While saving for retirement is always the end goal, not all savings vehicles are created equally. Across the board, 401(k) plans allow both business owners and their employees to contribute more each year towards their future, while gaining greater tax benefits than saving in an IRA.

If you’re a small business owner in Oregon, Illinois, or California, we’ve broken exactly how your state’s plan stacks up against a Ubiquity 401(k) plan.

Voluntary Payroll Deduct IRAs

New York’s program works similarly to the mandatory, state-sponsored IRA plans above. The New York Secure Choice Savings Program provides New York business owners who don’t currently offer a retirement plan the option to offer an auto-IRA, but does not set it as a requirement.

Open Multiple Employer Plans

Vermont and Massachusetts have chosen a voluntary multiple employer plan system (also known as an MEP). MEPs allow businesses to band together and offer a 401(k) plan to their employees with less of the financial, administrative, and compliance burden of running their own plans.

The State Retirement Marketplace Approach

The state of Washington chose a different route in helping their citizens save for the future. It has set up retirement marketplaces designed to bring together business owners and private retirement plan providers. The marketplace offers a variety of IRA, 401(k), and profit-sharing products for employers to choose from.
