The County of San Diego offers retirement plans for employees like you to put aside money from each paycheck toward retirement. These plans can help bridge the gap between what you have in your pension and Social Security, and how much you’ll need in retirement. They allow you to build a retirement savings account using automatic payroll deductions that go into investments you select from a wide variety of investment options and access to a Personal Retirement Consultant and Nationwide’s Retirement Specialists. The available plans include:
- 457(b) Traditional Deferred Compensation Plan — tax-deferred (pre-tax), available to all County and Court employees who receive a check through the County of San Diego
- 457(b) Roth Deferred Compensation Plan — after-tax, available to all County and Court employees who receive a check through the County of San Diego
- 401(a) Incentive Retirement Deferred Compensation Plan — tax-deferred (pre-tax), and available to all full-time, benefited County and Court employees within the first 90 calendar days after date of hire
For more information about each plan, including what you can contribute and to compare the plans side-by-side, check out the Plan Comparison Chart. If you would like to view official County Deferred Compensation Program Plan Documents, please call our Customer Solutions Center to receive a copy.
