Big Plans for Small Businesses

Jun 13, 2022

​Small businesses account for 99 percent of all U.S. businesses, and they employ half of private sector workers in the U.S. Most workers accumulate the majority of their retirement savings through workplace retirement plans. Because small business owners are concerned about their fiduciary liability, only half of them offer a retirement plan to their employees.

In this webinar, Newport partnered with PAi and Jennifer Kiffmeyer of the Retirement Learning Center to present a free webinar qualifying for one hour of CE credit towards the CIMA®, CPWA®, CIMC®, and RMA® certifications and the CFP® designation. This webinar also qualified for one Professional Development Credits (PDCS) toward SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP recertification.

During the webinar, attendees were able to:

  • Understand the important role small businesses play in helping U.S. workers save for retirement.
  • See how a plan governance process may help reduce fiduciary liability
  • Identify plan design elements that may help plan sponsors achieve personal and business goals
  • Stay up to date on plan compliance issues
