457b Roth

457b Roth is Here!

The Florida Deferred Compensation Plan (Plan), now, allows 457b Pre-Tax and 457b Roth (post-tax) payroll contributions. 457b Roth payroll contributions are made on a post-tax basis and give you more flexibility when it comes to meeting your retirement income goals and securing your financial future.

The new 457b Roth payroll contribution option does not change how much you can contribute to the Plan. Both 457b Pre-Tax and 457b Roth payroll contributions are combined and subject to Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 457b limits. You can contribute to both 457b Pre-Tax and 457b Roth in the same year in any proportion you choose and continue to utilize the same excellent investment options for your contributions. By having both options, you have more control over when your payroll contributions and retirement income will be subject to Federal Income Tax.
