A group of people sit around a table.

On June 21, 2022 Gusto sent a letter to the US Senate Finance Committee in support of the  Enhancing American Retirement Now (EARN) Act.  According to Guideline, a Gusto partner, 90% of businesses with fewer than 100 employees do not offer a retirement benefit.  The EARN Act expands the tax credit for small businesses to start a retirement plan, which would incentivize more employers to offer retirement savings benefits.
