Green Mountain Secure Retirement Plan

Vermont State Treasurer Beth Pearce and other stakeholders will host two public hearings in January aimed at developing a retirement option for Vermont employers and the self-employed.

A 2017 Vermont law authorized the creation of the Green Mountain Secure Retirement Plan, a voluntary Multiple Employer Plan (MEP) retirement option for Vermont self-employed individuals and employers of 50 employees or fewer that do not currently offer a retirement plan to their employees.
