A 403(b) plan is a way for employees of school districts and certain other tax-exempt organizations to save funds for retirement and other long-term financial needs. The payroll deductions can be contributed to the plan on a tax-deferred basis. This reduces current income tax and allows the money in the plan to grow untaxed until money is distributed to the participant. Please contact TCG Administrators at 1-800-943-9179 or visit the RAMS website at www.region10rams.org. To review a list of Certified 403(b) Companies please click HERE.
A 457 is a retirement savings plan that allows employees to make contributions on a pretax basis, thus income taxes are deferred until your assets are withdrawn. Most plans allow you to start, stop, increase or decrease contributions at any time. The contribution limits are separate from those of 401(k) and 403(b) plans allowing additional employee savings. There is also no 10% early withdrawal tax applicable to distributions from a 457(b) plan. Please contact TCG Administrators at 1-800-943-9179 for more information.
