About 457(b) Plans

A 457(b) is a retirement savings plan generally offered by public schools and other tax-exempt organizations that allows employees to make contributions on a pretax or Roth basis to help fill the retirement income gap. You can start, stop, increase or decrease contributions at any time.

While your state pension may be enough to pay your expenses when you first retire, your reduced monthly income may not be enough to cover costs from factors like medical bills, taxes, or your desired standard of living. This is a great way to help you save for life beyond your prime working years.

Plan

Saving is Important

Studies show 7 in 10 Americans experience financial stress because they feel unprepared to face financial challenges. A savings plan can help provide peace of mind in knowing you’re building your nest egg one paycheck at a time.

Save

Enjoy Tax Advantages

This plan enables tax savings now, and in some cases, later. Participants contributing on a pretax basis can postpone paying taxes until retired. Roth contributions pay taxes now but can get future bonuses.

Savings Grow Overtime

As time goes on, compounding interest, dividends, and capital gains can accumulate even higher earnings into your account. This means you’ll have more at your disposal when the day to retire comes around.
