Steps to Enroll

1. Determine the Amount per Paycheck

The Molalla River 403(b) plan is a voluntary retirement plan option, you may contribute to this plan by deferring from your paychecks and contributing those funds (in an amount you specify) to an account held under a 403(b) Vendor with an Active Payroll Slot in the plan.

Traditional 403(b) accounts are tax deferred, meaning funds are deferred from your check to your investment account on a pre-tax basis. When you contribute to a Traditional 403(b) account, your net pay is not reduced by the full amount of your contribution (please see our Retirement Saving Options page for detailed examples).

Molalla River allows Roth 403(b) contributions to any Molalla River vendor that will accept such contributions. Roth contributions are deferred on an after-tax basis, as opposed to Traditional 403(b) which are deferred on a pre-tax basis.

Please note: There are annual (calendar year) contribution limits that apply.

2. Select A Vendor and Open an Account

You may select one or more vendors Molalla River 403(b) Vendors with Active Payroll Slots to contribute to by contacting the Vendor or representatives to open an account under Plan ID* assigned to Molalla River. You must establish an account under the Molalla River 403(b) Plan specific Plan ID to begin deferrals. You may not defer to an account created under a prior/different employer's plan.Keep a copy of the documentation showing your newly assigned Account Number to evidence this step was completed.
