Once your Illinois Secure Choice employer account is set up and ready to go, you’ll be responsible for ongoing maintenance.
Updating contribution rates and submitting payroll contributions
If your employees change their contribution rate, you’ll need to update their contribution rate and their payroll deduction amount as soon as administratively possible.
With every pay cycle, you’ll submit contributions using the Illinois Secure Choice employer portal.
Set up new employees
As your business changes or grows, you will need to add new employees in the Illinois Secure Choice employer portal. Just like your existing employees, new workers will receive notification from us and have 30 days to set up their account or opt out before automatic payroll deductions begin. As the employer, you will have 60 days from their hire date to enroll them in the plan.
All records associated with Illinois Secure Choice should be kept for three years. If an employee makes any changes to their account by submitting a paper form, retain a copy for your records.
