    NC403(b) Change Form 06.14.18

     NOTE:  The maximum deferral amount in 2018 to a NC403b plan is $18,500.  In addition, the catch-up limit for those employees who are 50 and older by December 31, 2018 is $6,000 for a yearly total of $24,500.00.  If an employee is participating in both a NC401K and a 403b plan, the contribution limits must be coordinated so that the maximum deferral between the plans does not exceed $18,500 (or $24,500 if 50 or older in 2018). Rollovers from previous employer retirement plans do not impact the maximum amount an employee can contribute to this plan.

    UCPS does not offer an employee match for this plan.
