Enroll in Your 457 Deferred Compensation Plan

Your ICMA-RC 457 Deferred Compensation Plan:

  • You save and invest for your retirement with tax advantages.
    • Pre-tax contributions reduce your income taxes each year and allow you to defer taxes until you withdraw.
    • Roth contributions may also be available; while you do not receive a tax benefit for your contributions, your earnings may be tax-free.
  • It's handled automatically through your payroll.

Get Started

Contact your employer's benefit office or your ICMA-RC representative for an enrollment packet. Or, complete an enrollment form online, print it out, sign it, and return it to your employer.

You make just three important decisions:

  1. How Much to Save: Most plans allow you to start, stop, increase or decrease contributions at any time. The earlier you start saving, the more your money can work for you.
  2. How to Invest: Review the Investment Options sheet included with the enrollment packet. You can change your investments at any time.
  3. Who Your Beneficiaries Will Be: In the event of your death, your entire account balance is available to the beneficiary(ies) you designate.

Looking to simplify your investment decisions?

Ask if our quickEnrollment|Form, in which a target-date fund is chosen for you based on your age, is available for your employer's plan.
Does your savings and investment plan need a little more attention? Our Guided Pathways® advisory services provide specific guidance, advice, or, if available in your plan, ongoing management of your ICMA-RC retirement accounts.
