America Saves Week: Saving for retirement

Submitted by Human Capital Services - Benefits

America Saves Week is a great time to think about your personal savings plan. Did you know that in addition to the mandatory retirement plans offered by K-State to benefit eligible employees, there are also voluntary retirement savings options available?

All benefit eligible employees are able to enroll in a 403(b) retirement savings plan through payroll deduct. Employees can enroll at any point and are able to defer pretax or after-tax income to retirement savings. All retirement companies have financial advisors available to assist with investment options and financial questions.

All K-State employees are eligible to enroll in a Deferred Compensation (457) Plan through payroll deduct. The deferred compensation plan is a supplemental retirement savings option administered by Great West Financial. For more information, view the KPERS Tandem 457 website.

Annual pretax contribution limits are established by the IRS.
