Florida Deferred Compensation 457 Plan
All FSU employees can participate in a Deferred Compensation 457 Plan. Enrollment is completed through one of the approved provider companies or through the Florida Deferred Compensation Office.
403(b) Savings Plans
All FSU employees have the opportunity to participate in a voluntary 403(b) Savings Plan ; including a 403(b) Tax-Sheltered Annuity and/or a Roth 403(b).
A Tax-Sheltered Annuity 403(b) Savings Plan account allows participants to save money for retirement while reducing their income tax liability. A Roth 403(b) account allows participants to pay taxes on contributions now but receive qualified withdrawals (including earnings) tax-free at retirement. Contributing to either plan is voluntary. Contributions are payroll deducted on a pre-tax basis for Tax-Sheltered Annuity 403(b) participants and/or on a post-tax basis for Roth 403(b) participants and are forwarded to a participating investment company.
How do I enroll in a 403(b) plan, or make changes to my contribution amount? If you have not already done so, please contact one of the investment companies to create a new 403(b) account. New or existing contributions can be started, stopped, or changed at any time through one of the following Online Salary Reduction Agreement Forms.
