CalBar Connect partners with the ABA Retirement Funds Program to provide a comprehensive and affordable retirement plan solution available exclusively to the legal community.

Built by lawyers - powered by pros®, the ABA Retirement Funds Program has provided flexible, tailored retirement plans exclusively to the legal community for nearly 60 years. Our structure allows your firm to focus on the success of the practice while we provide the highest standard of fiduciary protection afforded to an individual retirement plan, reducing your fiduciary risk.

We provide an investment platform with options to allow for optimal choice and flexibility for your participants and a fully bundled service model, custom-designed to meet the unique needs of your firm, to help you and your plan participants learn more, save more and worry less. And we offer all of this at a competitive price whether you are a solo practitioner or a large legal organization. Through the unique culture created between the ABA Retirement Funds and our service providers at Voya, Mercer, and TD Ameritrade, we aim to help every California law firm, lawyer, and legal professional to and through retirement.

The ABA Retirement Funds Program and CalBar Connect will host a live webinar on Wednesday, October 6 at noon PST – “California Law on Sponsoring a Workplace Retirement Plan – What you need to know.” Join us to learn about recent California legislation requiring employer-sponsored retirement plans for businesses with more than 50 employees by June 30, 2021, and businesses with more than five employees by June 30, 2022. In this live webinar, we will review details around the legislation, the California plan (CalSavers), and alternative options for your firm. Register here.
