457(b) Deferred Compensation Retirement Plan

A 457(b) Deferred Compensation retirement plan is a tax-deferred plan that offers you an additional opportunity to save more money for retirement and pay less in taxes now.  When you elect to participate, a portion of your salary is set aside – on a pre-tax basis – to save toward supplementing your main retirement plan and Social Security.  This plan is available to all state employees who are eligible for benefits.

Classified Employees (Council 94, ESP & Nurses Unions)   A packet of information on the Fidelity, TIAA, and VOYA plans is available from the State Employee Benefits Office.

Non-Classified Employees (AAUP, MPA, Physicians, PSA & PTAA Unions)   A packet of information on the TIAA, VALIC & VOYA plans is available from the University’s Employee Benefits Office.

Call Employee Benefits at 874-2921 with any questions.
