Supplemental Retirement Accounts

401(k), 403(b), and 457(b), Roth 403(b)

Supplemental retirement plans (SRA) are available to University employees to help build retirement security through additional savings. Contributions are not matched by the University, but they are deducted before income taxes and deposited each pay period with the provider or providers chosen by the employee. An after-tax Roth 403(b) retirement plan is also available, which offers tax-free withdrawals at retirement. Changes to contribution amounts can be made at any time by completing and submitting a new salary reduction form for the plan.

Keep in mind

There are 26 paychecks in 2023.
