Your employees deserve better.

Employers with 5 or more employees in California are required to provide a retirement plan by June 30, 2022. Instead of signing up for the state-sponsored CalSavers plan, you can offer your employees so much more with a 401(k) from Betterment.

What makes a 401(k) from Betterment better?

  • Low cost.

    Lower costs can mean more money for you and your employees—savings that can really add up over time.

  • Easy to set up.

    Our guided onboarding gets your plan up and running quickly.

  • Integrated financial picture.

    Our easy-to-use platform ensures employees can have a holistic view of their financial goals in one place.

  • We have your back.

    Betterment assumes sole responsibility for fund selection and monitoring as defined by ERISA Section 3(38), relieving you of investment fiduciary liability. And since we don’t include any funds of our own, it’s easy to keep our priorities straight.

  • We help employees build wealth.

    Our investment strategy uses low-cost index Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) across multiple portfolio strategies, including three focused on socially responsible investing.

  • Financial wellness is in our DNA.

    By linking external accounts, employees can get help managing all of their savings goals, from building an emergency fund to saving for a major purchase like a home.

Offer your employees a brighter future with a better plan.

Our Socially Responsible Investing portfolio options allow your employees to invest in companies that align with the causes they care about while helping them to build wealth.
