Deferred Compensation Plans (457)
Supplemental Retirement Plans

Deferred Compensation is a method which allows you to take income out of your current earnings and set it aside to provide additional retirement income.  It will be taxed during your retirement years when you may be in a lower tax bracket.  The amounts you agree to defer are pre-tax dollars. The deferred amount is deducted from your gross earnings before federal and state taxes are deducted, and therefore, will reduce your current taxable income.

If you would like to enroll in a Supplemental Retirement Plan, please contact one of the vendors listed below.  Each agent will explain the programs they have to offer and provide assistance with the necessary paperwork to establish your plan.

Section 125 Plans:
Supplementary Group Insurance and Flexible Savings Account

Section 125 plans are those in which the insurance premiums are paid with pre-tax dollars.  The premiums for these plans will be deducted from your gross earnings before federal taxes; state taxes and FICA are deducted therefore lowering your current taxable income.   

Section 125 plans must be set up at the beginning of the plan year (fiscal year) or within 30 days of hire and other qualifying events.  Once you have enrolled, you will not be able to change or terminate the plan until the end of the plan year unless you have a qualifying event.
