Tax Shelter Annuities - 403(b) and Deferred Compensation Plans - 457 (b)


At its meeting of September 13, 2004 the Board of Trustees approved a deferred compensation plan under Section 457 of the Internal Revenue Code. The new 457 plan will complement the current 403(b) plan.

The District has chosen VALIC and Employee Benefits Services Group (EBSG) to provide 457 retirement plan products to the employees.

The 457 Program would allow employees to defer $18,000.00 for the calendar year 2017 in addition to the $18,000.00 permitted under the 403(b) plan for a combined maximum of $36,000.00 for year 2017 (with amounts scheduled to increase annually). In addition, there are age-based and retirement catch-up contributions, if qualified. For detailed information on 457 plan, click What is a 457 ?
