Connecticut MyCTSavings Program

Connecticut MyCTSavings Program

MyCTSavings is a state-sponsored program that gives all eligible individuals working in Connecticut access to a retirement plan. Many companies currently are not able to offer a retirement plan for their employees due to the cost associated with programs. The MyCTSavings program is set up so there are no costs to the employer. The MyCTSavings Program is an easy way for individuals to get a head start on retirement. More information can be found at MyCTSavings Program Description.
