How can you save more?

Hybrid Plan Members (anyone enrolled after January 1, 2014) will take full advantage of employer matched funds through auto-escalation. If you are not already contributing the maximum 4%, auto-escalation automatically increases your contribution to your retirement fund by 0.5% every three years until it reaches the maximum.

This escalation will be effective on the first paycheck of January 2020. Use the Hybrid Member Paycheck Calculator to visualize the impact of contributions and other deductions on your net pay. If you choose not to save more for retirement, you can opt out of auto-escalation between October 1 and December 15. You can also set your own annual increases using SmartStep.
