Roth 403(b)


Florida State University offers all employees (A&P, Faculty, USPS and OPS) the opportunity to participate in a Roth 403(b) plan. This plan allows participants to pay taxes on contributions now, but receive qualified withdrawals (including earnings) tax-free at retirement. Contributing to a Roth 403(b) is voluntary. All contributions are made through payroll deduction on a post-tax basis and are forwarded to a participating investment company where they are invested per the participating employee's instructions.

How do I enroll in a Roth 403(b) plan, or make changes to my contribution amount?

If you have not already done so, please contact one of the investment companies (listed above) to create a new Roth 403(b) account. New or existing contributions can be started/stopped/changed at any time through the Online Roth 403(b) Salary Reduction Agreement form.

Is there a minimum/maximum contribution amount in the Roth 403(b) plan?
