It’s Small Business Saturday! – Support Your Local Community

Published on 11/26/2022

Small businesses are an integral part of communities all across Connecticut. They create local jobs and add to the unique character that sets each town and city apart. Supporting small businesses is a great way to give back to your local community, especially this holiday season. 

Did you know there are over 322,000 small businesses in Connecticut alone? And with the help of MyCTSavings, employers at small businesses are able to be more competitive by offering a great benefit to their employees!

How MyCTSavings is Supporting Local Connecticut Businesses

MyCTSavings was designed by the State of Connecticut to make retirement savings accessible to everyone in a simple and convenient way. If you are a Connecticut employer with five or more employees,* you are required to participate in MyCTSavings if you don’t already offer a qualified retirement savings plan.

“I believe the reason I haven’t saved up until now is because I’ve never been given the opportunity for a program like this. It’s needed, especially with my peers – hardworking single mothers and fathers, and we need something when we’re moving a mile a minute that has our back.”

- Maria, JCHI Cleaning employee

Employers can now help their employees invest in their future by offering this program at no extra cost to their business. Since its launch in April, MyCTSavings has already made a positive impact on many small businesses.

“Having this program, especially working for a small business is empowering, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to save for the future.”

- Christian, Lorca Coffee Bar employee
