Supplemental Savings Plan Overview

Supplemental Savings Plan Overview

 

Below are the important features about your employer's plan. This website is intended to be a summary of the plan provisions.  In the event that a conflict exists between the information contained within this website and the plan document, the plan document provisions prevail.

Under the voluntary 403(b) portion of the program, members may make additional contributions on a tax-deferred basis to a Supplemental Savings Plan/403(b) (Voluntary Contributions). This type of program is available to employees of public schools and certain tax-exempt organizations under Section 403(b) of the Internal Revenue Code (it is also known as a Tax Deferred Annuity (TDA)).

Members are required to complete a "Salary Reduction Agreement" form with their employer in order to participate. Please see your Voya representative or contact your Benefits/Human Resources office for this form. While federal income tax will be deferred on contributions, State income tax and Social Security taxes will not be deferred.

Features

  • Choices and control of your investments
  • Portability of your account to other eligible retirement plans
  • Unlimited transfers between variable investment options via Internet or phone, subject to Voya's policy on market timing and excessive trading(link is external)
  • Tax-deferred investing — under the Internal Revenue Code, with this program your contributions and earnings on those contributions are subject to federal taxation only when you begin to take distributions
  • Availability of loans. Note: Loans will reduce your account balance.

Please note: loans will reduce your account balance, may impact your withdrawal value and limit participation in future growth potential. Other restrictions may apply.

Please refer to the disclosure materials in your Enrollment Kit (in the “Enrollment” section of this website) and/or the “Performance Report”( in the “Investment Performance” section of this website) for specifics regarding charges, expenses, fees, transfer restrictions, etc.
