Lincoln Public Schools Elective 403(b) Retirement Plan Educational Opportunity

The Plan is a valuable benefit program offered to you as an employee of Lincoln Public Schools.  It can help you put additional money aside for a financially secure retirement.  Participating in the Lincoln Public Schools Elective 403(b) Retirement Plan is easy.  You contribute a portion of your pay to your Plan account each payday, through convenient payroll deduction.

The contributions can have tax benefits as well.  Any pre-tax contributions and earnings on your account are not subject to federal or state income tax until you take the dollars out of the Plan.  This tax deferral gives your retirement savings the opportunity to grow under the most favorable terms possible.

The Plan also allows you to make designated ROTH contributions.  Designated Roth contributions are included in your current taxable income, but may be withdrawn tax-free!

Now you are in charge!  You decide whether you want to save pre-tax or post-tax dollars, how much you would like to save, and how it’s invested.  Come to one of the 1 hour meetings to get more information.
