RetirePath Virginia is a retirement savings program created to encourage more Virginians to save for retirement. It will require employers who have been in operation for at least 2 years and have 25 or more employees to provide access to a retirement plan.
As an employer, you can choose the type of plan you’d like to offer: the state-facilitated plan or a qualified private plan, like a Guideline 401(k).
The pilot program is estimated to launch in 2023. Phased enrollment will begin on July 1, 2023.
