In recognition of Women’s History Month, SBA St. Louis District Office is presenting a free Affordable Care Act (ACA) seminar in St. Louis on Tuesday, March 25, 2014, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. with particular emphasis on benefits to women. SBA staff and the Small Business Majority will present information specifically for small business owners. Topics will include which companies must offer insurance in 2015, individual insurance requirements, healthcare.gov site walkthrough, Small Business Health Options Program (SHOP) Marketplace, potential tax credits, and other pertinent information. Small business owners will be able to see insurance plans available locally and discover some of ACA’s benefits. SBA St. Louis District Director notes, “Women, older adults, and those with preexisting conditions benefit as much or more than other groups. Insurance companies can no longer charge more just because the insured is female. There is a limit to how much older adults can be charged for coverage. Those with preexisting conditions can’t be turned down, nor will they have to pay more.” He continues, “The Affordable Care Act has made entrepreneurship an option for people who previously had to remain on an employer plan. And even if a small employer can’t offer insurance, they can now direct their employees to the Marketplace.”

The NJSBDC at Rutgers Newark is introducing the Disaster Preparedness & Continuation of Operations Webinar. This Webinar is designed to help businesses cut the cost of physical and economic injury businesses suffer after a disaster and to help businesses have a plan. Following a disaster, statistics show that ninety percent of companies fail within a year unless they can resume operations within five days. Having a plan can ensure that you're back in business quickly and able to provide products and services to your community. Although major disasters, such as hurricanes, floods, earthquakes and large-scale power outages are infrequent, smaller disasters, such as server failure, burst pipes and fires can happen often. With the DISASTER PREPAREDNESS & CONTINUITY OF OPERATIONS Webinars the Center is committed to help companies be prepared for both the worst and everyday challenges, which could cripple a business.
