Introducing the NEW BOULDER CHAMBER 401(k) Program
A new cost-effective opportunity exclusive to our membership

Did you know?
The IRS offers three tax credit programs to offset not only the administrative costs of implementing a plan, but also the ability to offset employer contributions to employees. A new plan can be eligible for up to $55,500 in tax credits annually for the first three years of plan operation!
A quick conversation with our group plan specialist can help you compare value to money spent for your retirement plan.
We are partnering with Lincoln Financial Group to deliver to you:
Access to potential pricing and service efficiencies - economies of scale
Less administrative work, as you hand off many of the responsibilities that come with running a 401(k), including filing Form 5500 and employee loans
Relief from many fiduciary obligations, while maintaining your current plan design — or changing to a plan design that works for you
