Are you contributing to a supplemental retirement and investment plan?
- If not, now may be a good time to start!
- If you are, consider increasing your contribution, or reviewing your retirement goals, and updating your beneficiaries.
As a University of Illinois employee, two supplemental retirement plans are available to help increase your retirement savings opportunity. Enrollment is voluntary and available at any time.
The 2017 contribution limit is $18,000* ($24,000 if you are age 50 or over) for each plan. You may contribute both traditional (pre-tax) and Roth (after-tax) at the same time, but your combined contributions cannot exceed the limit listed above for each plan. You may contribute to these plans simultaneously and you may be eligible to make additional contributions in some cases. See the Supplemental Retirement Plan Comparison Chart for more information.
* If during the calendar year you contribute to a retirement plan through another employer, it is your responsibility to monitor your contributions to all plans to ensure you do not contribute over the IRS maximum allowed each year.
