Changes to the 403(b) retirement plan

Effective in January 2016, DePaul University announces the following new and exciting changes to DePaul's 403(b) Retirement Plan!

Increased Match - Starting January 1, 2016, DePaul's 403(b) Matching Contribution will increase to 8.5%. If you are match eligible (see criteria below), you will automatically receive the increased matching contribution.

New 403(b) Retirement Savings Website - DePaul has launched an enhanced 403(b) Savings Plan website, which allows faculty and staff to:
Enroll or change your savings rate
Elect your Retirement Provider (Fidelity and/or TIAA-CREF)
Link to your current Fidelity or TIAA-CREF account, and view your Plan balances
Use interactive tools and calculators to help you plan for your retirement

More Flexibility In Making Election Change Requests - Prior to 2016, savings rate changes could only be made once a month. Going forward in 2016, elections may be made bi-weekly, up until the Friday prior to a paycheck. For example, you may make your contribution election as late as January 15, 2016 (by 5p.m. CT), and it will be effective on your January 22, 2016 paycheck.

Automatic Enrollment - Any faculty or staff employee hired on or after January 1, 2016 will be automatically enrolled in the 403(b) Plan at a 5% savings rate, unless you opt out or make a different savings rate election within 60 days of your hire.
