Certify your exemption

Participate in three steps

We know that running your business is your top priority. That’s why OregonSaves is easy to set up and requires only light account maintenance. After the initial set up, your role is focused on sending contributions and maintaining employee records — we take care of the rest, at no cost to you.

  1. 1 Register
  2. 2 Send Contributions
  3. 3 Maintenance

Set up your ID and password, answer questions about your company and payroll process, complete payment setup, and then add your employees.

You can even invite a payroll representative to help you facilitate this process. Your payroll representative can be an admin, a teammate, or even your bookkeeper or payroll administrator.

Once you have added employees, we will communicate directly with them to explain their options during the 30 days they have to opt out or customize their account.

At the end of the 30-day period, we will notify you of their choices and send a reminder to begin payroll deductions, and submit contribution information and funding for the employees who choose to stay in the program.

To stay in compliance, continue to send payroll contributions and maintain employee records, including updating contribution rate changes when needed, adding new employees, and marking former employees as terminated.

Things you won’t be responsible for

As an employer, you’ll have a limited role in facilitating OregonSaves so you can stay focused on running your business.

You will not be responsible for:

  • Answering questions about the program or investment options. Employers should not give investment or tax advice.

  • Managing employee investment options, including helping to choose investment funds and processing investment change requests.

  • Processing withdrawals from employee accounts.

  • Managing employee account maintenance, including changes to contact information and beneficiaries.

If enrolled, your employees will be responsible for maintaining their own account information and settings.
