Secure, Accessible, Valuable, Efficient Universal Pension Accounts Act or the SAVE UP Act
This bill amends the Internal Revenue Code to establish the SAVE UP Account program to provide tax-exempt retirement accounts to employees who are not otherwise eligible for certain retirement plans.
The bill establishes: (1) a board of trustees to create and manage the accounts, (2) a board of governors to establish policies for the investment and management of fund assets, and (3) a trust fund and accounts in the Treasury for the program.
An employer must establish an account contribution program if: (1) the employer's aggregate number of employee hours of service during the preceding year was at least 1,600; (2) the employer does not offer a retirement plan to all employees. Government entities and churches are exempt from this requirement.
Under the contribution program, employers must: (1) contribute at least 50 cents per hour worked by the employee; and (2) make automatic contributions on behalf of employees who do not opt-out, beginning with 3% of wages and eventually increasing to 5%.
The bill sets forth requirements for: (1) determining an employee's share of positive net investment returns, and (2) paying benefits from the accounts in the form of an annuity
The bill allows a tax credit for certain small employers who elect to set up contribution programs for their employees.
If an employer fails to maintain a required contribution program, the bill disallows the deduction for compensation for services performed by employees of the employer.
