On Thursday October 29th, Don and Brett attended the “Get Covered: Business and Community Health Action Fair,” which featured resources for small business owners, self-employed individuals, and community members interested in enrolling in health coverage through Healthcare.gov or the small business health marketplace (SHOP). There was also a panel discussion focused on business health issues. Topics included:
- The healthcare law and coverage options for small businesses
- Access to capital and the Small Business Borrower’s Bill of Rights – a basic set of rights that encourages transparency and fairness in small business lending
- Retirement security: succession planning for business owners and the Illinois Secure Choice law – a new program that can help small business employees save for retirement
