Shãn Sutherland, Wealth Advisor at Simple Impact LLC, Discusses Retirement Plan Options in California

Shãn Sutherland, Wealth Advisor at Simple Impact LLC

Shãn Sutherland’s company, Simple Impact LLC, offers women business owners assistance with CalSavers or Retirement Plan activation

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Over the past year, I've been having a lot of conversations with business owners who are asking what makes more sense, sign up for Cal Savers or establish a 401(k) retirement plan?

What’s driving this law? California says increased costs for medical and other state programs that are the result of an aging population is the main culprit.

If you participate in CalSavers you do not need to establish a separate retirement plan for your business. If you have an existing retirement plan, CalSavers is not mandatory. In the latter instance, you do need to certify with the state through the California “secure choice” website that you offer an employee plan and employees are made aware of it.

Employers choose to enroll in CalSavers on the internet or with phone support. Employees will receive an access code once their employer has enrolled them. They will also need internet access where the employee can choose to opt out, or review and select investment options. There are some very nice people at 855-650-6918, to help enrollees, and offer language including Spanish speaking assistance.

A diligent business founder has worked hard for a very long time and there is a smarter way to reward herself. By paying less taxes and simultaneously building employee loyalty, business owners’ lives can be simple and in alignment with her long-term goals.

There are 12 different retirement plans. Appropriate plans for business owners that fit the California mandate include Simple IRA's, SEP IRAs, and (my favorite) the 401(k). I strongly urge the 401(k) as it allows for the most options including larger annual contributions, taxable or tax deferred contributions, loans provisions, length of service, vesting schedules if employer matches contributions, cash balance contributions, and profit sharing to reward her best employees making a difference to the bottom line of the business.

Here is the key terminology that a founder and her human resource staff should be aware of when creating a retirement plan for the business:

In a 401(k) the employer will set up legal documents known as the Retirement Trust with its own tax ID. In these documents, the employer is referred to as the plan sponsor and fiduciary. For larger companies, this responsibility can be outsourced to another person or committee.

The Retirement Trust is the plan documents created by the legal teams of the record keeper, Third Party Administrators (TPA). There are boilerplate templates, however, the best plan design takes into consideration the needs of the employer and her employees. In my experience, the angel is in the details.

TPA’s make sure the plan is maintained and compliant with ERISA laws. Actuaries would help determine the funding requirements for a defined benefit plan, i.e. cash balance plan. Like any specialized bookkeeper, record keepers and actuaries have special training in the retirement field. Plan design by an experienced and knowledgeable TPA, brings huge value to a plan sponsor/employer. Good plan design, that my clients have first-hand experienced, can be expressed as nothing but magical.

The record keepers maintain details such as employee and employer contributions, account numbers, investments loans, withdrawals, and other administrative information.

As the assets grow inside of the retirement plan, the record keeper or TPA will recommend an ERISA Fidelity bond purchase. ERISA bonds ensure retirement benefits if the fiduciary mishandles the funds entrusted to them.

As the Advisor, I think of my role as a 401K care coordinator. Since it's football season you can also think of the advisor as your quarterback. It's important to have a point person who knows the players, and how to navigate the field to get the best result. My role begins with helping the employer to gather and organize her critical information including the Census data spreadsheet. I take time and listen carefully to understand what her needs are and share industry best practices.

Based on her business goals, a TPA is chosen to best fit the plan needs. I also evaluate and recommend recordkeepers. Common needs include the size of business(es), number of employees covered, ages of employees and owners, expected or desired annual contributions and integration with employer’s benefit package (just to name a few). Once the business census data has been analyzed, I meet with the plan sponsor to show them anticipated costs, benefits, players, and the plan design to closely meet their needs.

Since I act as a fiduciary for all my qualified retirement clients, Simple Impact LLC services include one or more of the following activities: Hourly consulting to assist the business owner with CalSavers enrollment. Helping other women business owners establish their 401(k)retirement plan. Most importantly, I am the Chief hand-holder for the business owner.

Retirement readiness should benefit her, as much as her employees. Having a retirement plan in place is a key tool for cashing out of your business in a tax efficient manner when it comes time to enjoy the fruits of all the years of hard labor. If you own a California business and have been contemplating if you should start a retirement plan, the choice has now been made for you. Choose CalSavers or a private plan, to help you embrace and live intentionally the next exciting chapter of life.

“Hate Among Us,” New Film on the Rise of Anti-Semitism, Challenges Hate in a Modern World

“Incredibly, in this day and age of “wokeness”, Anti-Semitic incidents are once again on the rise” – Producer Dean Cain

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “HATE AMONG US” a new film about the rise of anti-Semitism, depicts unique perspectives on anti-Semitism from young and old alike. Viewpoints include those from Jews and non-Jews, and from those within historic Jewish neighborhoods in Europe, to the streets of Charlottesville and Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life Synagogue massacre. The narrative connects real stories of current survivors of violent anti-Semitism to those of the holocaust. The powerful film illustrates how renewed intolerance is taking root in communities, institutions & universities, with far reaching consequences around the world.

The film will release on November 29th, 2019 for its initial theatrical run, with a U.S. premiere at the Laemmle Town Center in Encino and Cinema Village in New York.

Laemmle Town Center
(Los Angeles)
17200 Ventura Blvd,
Encino, CA 91316

Cinema Village
(NYC)
22 E 12th St,
New York, NY 10003

Executive Producers Dean Cain and Montel Williams have managed to shed light on today's global rise of anti-Semitism with the new film, along with its hateful and consequential effects on the lives of all people, and its complicated motivations. This is their follow-up film to "Architects of Denial," which chronicles the Armenian Genocide.

“Incredibly, in this day and age of “wokeness”, Anti-Semitic incidents are once again on the rise,” explains Producer Dean Cain, “and open assaults against Jews continue. It’s time to educate people, shine a light upon this outrage, and stand up to this hate.”

Moved to bring more awareness to the myriad of issues surrounding hate crimes – especially those perpetuated by religion and bigoted idealogies, the producers artfully educate the viewing audience on the history of anti-Semitism, some of the tragic and unspeakable events of recent times including the Charlottesville demonstrations, Pittsburg’s Tree of Life attack, the attack at the Chabad synagogue near San Diego and the pervasive and growing anti-Jewish & anti-Israel BDS movement.

“Hate Among Us” was created in memory of Mireille Knoll, a holocaust survivor, loving mother and grandmother. The film interviews her surviving sons and granddaughters, and describes how Mireille survived the Holocaust only to be murdered in 2018 by two radicalized Muslim assailants, stabbing her 11 times before setting her on fire. One of the assailants had known her since he was a child.

“In 2019, hate is again on the march,” reflects Producer Montel Williams, “we made this film because the best defense to hate is truth. Too often, people of good will remain silent in the face of hate and my hope is this film will empower them to take action.”

The producers of 'Hate Among Us’ believe that it is imperative to educate today's youth and any who may be unaware of these new atrocities in a hope to inspire all to raise their collective voices and stop the hatred now. We should never stop striving for an ideal world wherein all human beings are free to live their chosen lives without fear of persecution.

“It’s time to educate all on the consequences of hate, vow to change our ways and end the indignity and suffering of anti-Semitism. History tends to repeat itself! ‘Hate Among Us’ offers us an opportunity to reflect and try to change that for once!” – The Hate Among Us Team

by Michael Kryton, EQUITY IR contributing writer

Having successfully launched 100 iDrink smart beverage vending machines in Taiwan, SUIC (Sino United Worldwide Consolidated OTC: SUIC) and iDrink Technology have formed another joint venture focused on opening up Southeast Asia.

Global trade in the ASEAN region is significant, topping US$5.3 trillion per year. Combined gross domestic product is US$2.4 trillion making it is the third largest economy in Asia, and the seventh largest in the world. The region’s E-commerce is robust as well and is the most dynamic sector of the digital economy. Gross merchandising value (GMV) hit US$23 billion in 2018 more than doubling the numbers generated in 2017, which recorded US$11 billion.

House Buyers of America Increases 2019 Q3 Revenue by 80% over Same Period in 2018

The award-winning high-tech homebuying company takes market slowdown concerns out of the equation, guarantees homeowners a fast sale at top dollar value

CHANTILLY, VA, UNITED STATES, November 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — House Buyers of America (House Buyers), the leading high-tech homebuying company that is reinventing the industry with its direct, no ‘middle-man’ approach that charges no commissions or fees, announces the release of its third quarter financials.

House Buyers’ revenue grew by 80% in Q3 2019 over Q3 2018, with a 33% increase in settlements. In September 2019 alone, compared to August, 2019, the company’s settlements increased by 63%, resulting in a 54% expansion in revenue.

The House Buyers model is particularly valuable as 2020 approaches, and experts express concerns of a housing market slowdown and market recession. A recent panel of more than 100 housing experts and economists, moderated by Zillow.com, found that 51% of this group predicts home buying will decrease in 2020, while only 17% felt that activity would rise.

The growth that House Buyers continues to experience is attributable to its direct, no-hassle model that allows homeowners to sell their homes fast across the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia regions, for top values. House Buyers works directly with homeowners with no need for a real estate agent or other ‘middle man.’ This allows House Buyers to drive results for homeowners, unaffected by the changing climate of the economy or real estate market.

“Home sellers are always in need of an option to sell their homes fast and for the best value,” said Nick Ron, CEO of House Buyers of America. “We buy houses and help sellers confidently and efficiently sell their homes for top dollar, while taking the climate of the market out of the equation. After an 80% increase in revenues this past quarter compared to Q3 2018, have no intention of slowing down.”

International women's rights organization Equality Now honors bestselling author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie for her contribution to advancing gender equality.

Sometimes it can feel very lonely trying to prove that sexism exists, that we haven’t achieved basic equality for women around the world. Tonight is an oomph that shows me that it truly matters.”

— Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, November 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Best selling Nigerian author and feminist icon Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie was honoured last night in New York City at the annual "Make Equality a Reality" gala, hosted by international women’s rights organization Equality Now.

Each year, Equality Now honours individuals who have made outstanding contributions to the advancement of gender equality.

Regardless of race, age, gender, or nationality Adichie persuasively argues that dismantling gender oppression through feminism is for everyone.

While accepting the honor, Adichie said in her speech at the gala: “I was a feminist long before I knew what the word meant. Not because I read books but because I observed the world around me and saw how women were treated.”

“Sometimes it can feel very lonely trying to prove that sexism exists, that we haven’t achieved basic equality for women around the world. Tonight is an oomph that shows me that it truly matters.”

“I’m going to remember this night when people tell me to shut up. I’m not going to shut the f*ck up!”

In selecting this year’s honoree, Executive Director of Equality Now, Yasmeen Hassan, cited Adichie's commitment to highlighting the diversity of the African experience and dispelling the tired Western trope of the poor African in need of rescuing.

“In creating nuanced, complex, and resilient female characters, Chimamanda has encouraged a more inclusive and representational global feminism,” Hassaan explained.

Previous honourees have included actor and activist Jane Fonda, bestselling author of The Handmaids Tale and The Testaments, Margaret Atwood; and Jaha Dukureah, renowned anti-FGM activist and survivor. Leading feminist and noted author Gloria Steinman has also been awarded and sits on Equality Now’s advisory board.

About Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie:

Through her storytelling, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie has used the power of words to elevate the injustices faced by women and girls throughout the world. Connecting with millions of readers globally, her books have been translated into over thirty languages.

Adichie's 2009 TED Talk, The Danger of A Single Story, which explores what happens when complex human beings and situations are reduced to a single stereotyped narrative, is one of the most watched TED talks of all time.

In addition, her 2012 TED Talk, We Should All Be Feminists, spurred a global conversation about feminism and was turned into a celebrated book.

About Equality Now:

Equality Now is an international human rights organization that works to protect and promote the rights of women and girls around the world by combining grassroots activism with international, regional and national legal advocacy. Our international network of lawyers, activists, and supporters achieve legal and systemic change by holding governments responsible for enacting and enforcing laws and policies that end legal inequality, sex trafficking, sexual violence, and harmful practices such as female genital mutilation and child “marriage”.
