CCC Clackamas ESD 403(b) Enrollment Information

1. Determine the Amount per Paycheck

This link provides information on maximum allowable contribution (MAC) amounts. However, you may be either unwilling or unable to contribute the maximum allowable amount. You must decide how much you would like to contribute to the plan each month based on your financial goals and your budget constraints. Keep in mind that the tax deferred nature of these contributions means that your net pay is not reduced by the full amount of your contribution. Final determination of the impact of tax deferred contributions on net pay depends on your federal and state marginal tax rates. For additional information, see net pay impact illustrations. For personalized calculations, paycheck evaluation software is useful. Online calculators for various purposes are available on the useful links page. For a personal MAC calculation or if you have additional questions, contact us.

Continuation Until Cancellation

The most recent 403(b) Salary Reduction Agreement (SRA) document on file at Clackamas ESD remains in effect until you cancel the agreement, change the contribution amount, or change the vendor. One or more of these three actions requires submission of a new 403(b) Salary Reduction Agreement.

Clackamas ESD May Reduce Or Suspend Contributions

Clackamas ESD is required to avoid contributions that might exceed IRS limits. Consequently, the 403(b) SRA stipulates that Clackamas ESD may reduce and/or suspend contributions as necessary to avoid excess deferrals. CCC monitors year-to-date contributions each month and notifies Clackamas ESD when such reductions and suspensions are required. Prior to an actual reduction and/or suspension, you are given the opportunity to review the data on which the decision to reduce/suspend was made to verify its accuracy.
