403b Retirement Plan Account

A type of retirement account for tax exempt or non profit employees are known as 403b plans. Contributions can be made tax deferred with a portion of salary which is then directed by the employer. These plans must comply with 403 b Regulations

These institutions could include:

  • Universities
  • Schools
  • Foundations
  • Hospitals

The contribution amounts into this type of retirement plan are made with after tax dollars. 403b plans offer the employee a chance to defer money and have it invested in dedicated mutual funds, tax deferred annuities or other securities.

Retirement Value

As with any retirement account or plan, 403b account holders will have a retirement value based on the contributions they made, the years they were in the plan, and the value of the securities within the 403b account. Diversification of funds and spreading of risk can protect the employee best and allow them to get the highest investment performance and income at retirement.
