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. A minimum contribution of $25.00 per pay period is required for non-classified employees or $10.00 if you are a state classified employee.

Please contact Heather Nayman at 874-4618 for more information.
