FAQs

What is a 403b plan?

A 403b plan is a salary reduction retirement plan. Once an employer adopts a 403b plan, eligible employees may choose to make contributions as well as possibly receive contributions made by the employer on their behalf.


How do I contribute to my 403b plan?

Complete the Enrollment Form and the amount is automatically deducted from your paycheck.


When are contributions deposited into my 403b plan?

No more than 15 days after being withdrawn from your paychecks.


Do I pay taxes on 403b plan contributions?

403b plan contributions and any earnings on your contributions are not subject to income taxes until you withdraw the funds (assuming it is a non-ROTH contribution). Participation in a 403b plan does not reduce your Social Security benefits.


May I make changes to my contribution amount during the year?

You may stop or begin your salary deferral for 403b plan contributions anytime with advance notice (subject to Employer Plan Document – contact your plan administrator).

  • Hardship distributions (such as death, disability, etc.)
  • Permissive service credits

Federal and state taxes and/or penalties may apply (contact your tax advisor or financial provider).


Can I roll/transfer other retirement accounts into my 403b?

Yes, this feature is allowed to consolidate various accounts into one (subject to Employer Plan Document – contact your plan administrator).
