What is this service?
The Deferred Compensation Plan is a voluntary savings plan offered by the County to enable employees to save for their future on a tax deferred basis (although a Roth option is also available). There is currently no matching contributions from the employer. Other agencies also participate in the DC Plan - Courts, APCD, LAFCO.
The County's Deferred Compensation Plan is established and administered pursuant to Section 457 of the Internal Revenue Code. The DC Plan is administered on behalf of the County by the Pension Trust. The recordkeeper and provider of investment options for the DC Plan is Nationwide Retirement Solutions.
Beginning September 28, 2017, Nationwide is the new provider for the Deferred Compensation Plan. You can review the transition brochure for details regarding the transition, new plan provisions, investment options, and contact information.
