Illinois Secure Choice program takes aim at ‘retirement crisis’

Illinois Secure Choice was created by state law in 2015, requiring businesses with 25 employees or more to offer retirement savings plans or take part in the new program which automatically enrolls employees in a state-created but independently managed retirement plan.
