On Aug. 30, the Red Bud Chamber of Commerce hosted a luncheon meeting for their general membership at DeVinos Winery.

The guest speaker at the luncheon was Deanna Verduin, the deputy director of Secure Choice through the Illinois state treasurer’s office.

She explained that Secure Choice is a state retirement savings program, which is part of the Illinois Secure Choice Savings Program Act which was enacted as a state law in 2015. This law requires that certain businesses either sponsor their own qualified retirement plan or facilitate with the Secure Choice program.
