Make your retirement nest egg bigger...

Did you know you can increase your retirement nest egg through an employee deferred contribution?

In addition to the $1.00 per hour that your Employer pays on your behalf for every hour you work to the Defined Contribution Retirement Fund, you can elect to have your employer withhold from your gross wages an elective contribution that will increase your retirement account.

The 2024 calendar maximum for Elective Contribution is $23,000. If you will be at least 50 years old on December 31, 2024, you may elect to have an additional "Catch-Up" elective contribution up to a maximum of $7,500.

Before deciding on electing an employee elective contribution, which will be deducted from your gross pay, you should consult a personal financial and tax advisors for guidance.

The election is for the whole calendar year and cannot be changed or stopped.
