- The ability for employees to begin contributing their own money on a pre-tax basis among two carriers: Fidelity and TIAA-CREF.
- A wide choice of investment options to customize savings.
- Eligibility for a University contribution that usually begins after 12 months of employment. Eligible employees contribute 5% of base salary while the University contributes 8%. Service requirements may be waived for eligible employees with one year of service with an educational institution.
- Immediate vesting of contributions, so employees have the right to receive all of the money in their accounts when they leave.
- Contributions and investment earnings grow on a tax-deferred basis in a 403(b) plan until distribution is made.
