Voluntary Retirement Plans
403 (b) Traditional, Roth & 457(b) Deferred Plans
MCSD offers two different options of supplemental retirement savings plans, in addition to the state retirement plan known as Florida Retirement System (FRS), to all employees*.
1) Traditional Pre-Tax
The Martin County School District provides the opportunity for eligible employees* to make tax-sheltered investments through payroll deductions in accordance with Internal Revenue Code 403(b) & 457(b). You will not have to pay federal income tax on the money you invest until the money is withdrawn. This is a smart way to save money for retirement.
2) Roth Post-Tax
Roth plans allow you to invest funds from your salary on a post-tax basis. Your investments will grow tax-free and you will not have to pay any income tax on the investments or profits when the funds are withdrawn after you retire or otherwise qualify. Most of the vendors on this page also administer the Roth plans.
These plans allow employee to:
Strengthen employee's financial future
Contribute through payroll deductions
Save for retirement with tax advantages
Take it with employee upon termination from MCSD
