Defined Contribution Retirement Plan

 

The University offers a 403(b)/401(a) Defined Contribution Retirement Plan and employees may invest with TIAA-CREF and/or Fidelity Investments. There are different levels of contributions which vary depending on your job classification and collective bargaining agreement. For a brief description of the plan for which you may be eligible, please view the appropriate employee category listed below. For questions regarding eligibility, please contact the Benefits Office at retirement@temple.edu or call 215-926-2281.

All employees paid on the University payroll system may voluntarily elect to make pre-tax or Roth 403(b) after-tax contributions to a 403(b) account. There are several investment options from which to choose from. The maximum amount an employee may contribute in any calendar year is limited by IRS regulations (please refer to 2014 IRS Calendar Year Limits).

Employees electing to enroll in the Defined Contribution Plan for the first time will need to complete both the TIAA-CREF and/or Fidelity application on-line and the Salary Reduction Agreement form to initiate the payroll contributions.
