Mission Statement

The California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Investment Board (the "Board") was established by Chapter 734, Statutes of 2012 (SB 1234), to study the feasibility of implementing a state-administered retirement savings program for private sector employees in California with no access to workplace retirement savings plans. The Board consists of nine members: the State Treasurer (Chairperson), the Director of the Department of Finance, the State Controller, a retirement savings and investment expert appointed by the Senate Committee on Rules, an employee representative appointed by the Speaker of the Assembly, a small business representative appointed by the Governor, a public member appointed by the Governor, and two additional members appointed by the Governor.

Additionally, Chapter 737, Statutes of 2012 (SB 923), provides that the California Secure Choice Retirement Savings Program (the "Program") cannot be implemented until a subsequent authorizing statute is enacted that expresses the approval of the Legislature for the Program to be fully implemented.
