3 Defined Contribution Plans The County has two 457 Defined Contribution Plans. A 457 Plan is governed by the Internal Revenue Code. This presentation will focus only on the 1.62% Defined Contribution Plan. Employees hired on or after 5/7/2010 are eligible to elect the 1.62% at 65 Retirement Formula. Only employees who elect the 1.62% Retirement Formula are eligible to contribute to the 1.62% Defined Contribution Plan. You can voluntarily set aside a portion of your biweekly income on a pretax basis to the Plan. The Plan can help you save and invest money for retirement.
4 Voluntary Contributions Contributions to the 1.62% Defined Contribution Plan are voluntary and are in addition to your (mandatory) OCERS Defined Benefit Pension contributions. You may increase or decrease your employee contribution at any time. The minimum contribution amount is $1.00 biweekly. You can contribute 100% of your includible income up to $16,500 in 2010 (and up to an additional $5,500 if youre age 50 or older). Loans and Hardship Withdrawals are not available under the 1.62% Defined Contribution Plan.
