Steps to Enroll

1. Determine the Amount per Paycheck

The JCSD 509-J 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 net pay impact illustrations page for detailed examples).

JCSD 509-J allows Roth 403(b) contributions to any JCSD 509-J 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 JCSD 509-J 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 JCSD 509-J. Keep a copy of the documentation showing your newly assigned Account Number to evidence this step was completed.

*Please note: You must establish an account under the JCSD 509-J 403(b) Plan specific Plan ID to begin deferrals. You may not defer to an account created under a prior/different employer's plan.
