The U.S. is facing a looming retirement crisis. By 2035, nearly 20 million retirees will be living in poverty or near-poverty. By 2050, that number will reach 25 million.
This isn’t just a problem with not saving enough— over 40 million employees – especially those working at small businesses, don’t have access to a work-sponsored retirement savings plan. Since 1999, we have worked to provide thousands of small businesses affordable ways to save like never before. Alleviating the savings gap is at the heart of what we do, and with your help, our impact will continue to spread.
You and your employees will get 1-year fee-free for every 10 businesses you send our way that sign-up with us, and the 10 businesses you referred will get a bonus month of fees waived!
Ubiquity’s Referral Program (“Program”) is open to all individuals. To participate in the Program, referring party (“Referrer”) must submit all required fields asked above. In order to be eligible to receive credit, the new referred client (“Referee”) must not be a current Ubiquity customer, and must open either an Express(k) or Custom(k) plan with Ubiquity. If the Referrer is a third party and not an existing client, the referral reward of $400 (“Reward”) will only be paid to the Referrer when the Referee pays their first quarterly invoice. If the Referrer is an existing client, when the Referee pays their first invoice, the Referrer will receive a credit for the equivalent of 2 months of the administration fee based on Referrer’s plan. Regardless of whether the Referrer is an existing client or not, Referee’s second invoice will receive statement credit for the waived set-up fee and credit for the equivalent of 2 months of the administration fee based on the plan purchased by the Referee.
After the Referrer’s 10th Referee pays their first quarterly invoice, a credit will be made to the Referrer’s next quarterly invoice for the equivalent of 12 months of the administration fee based on the plan purchased, and each of the Referrer’s 10 Referee’s will also receive a similar 1 month credit on their quarterly invoices for the equivalent of 1 month of the administration fee based on their plan purchased.
Referrers will not receive credit for referring themselves. Referrers are limited to referring their own friends, colleagues, family members, and direct acquaintances whom they believe would be interested in opening a group 401(k) plan. Any referred clients must be able to personally identify their referrer. Ubiquity reserves the right to disqualify anyone from this Program at any time. Anyone who violates these official rules is ineligible for payment of any bonus.
The Program supports referrals to Ubiquity’s Express(k) and Custom(k) products, and no payments will be made for referral to other Ubiquity products.
If the referee’s plan is canceled for any reason within 90 days of the effective date, Ubiquity will waive the standard cancellation fee.
If you participate in the Program you agree not to solicit applications for any Ubiquity products. You agree not to compensate, or accept any compensation from, applicants whom you refer to Ubiquity through the Program. You further agree that your activities will be limited to informing your contacts about Ubiquity’s products so that they may independently decide whether or not to purchase a 401(k) plan. You may not collect information on behalf of your contacts or assist them in purchasing a 401(k) from Ubiquity.
