CCC's Relationship with To Be Determined

The Plan Has Few Optional Features

Because the To Be Determined 403(b) TSA Plan has so few participants, and because new IRS Regulations require significant Employer oversight responsibilities to administer a full-featured Plan, it would not be cost-effective for To Be Determined to offer a 403(b) Plan that allowed loans, hardship distributions, exchanges, transfers, rollovers, and other optional features generally available in 403(b) Plans. Therefore, the To Be Determined 403(b) Plan allows only the following two optional features (see Plan Document for details):

  • Age 50+ Catch-up Provision; and
  • In-Service Distributions After Age 59-1/2

 

To Be Determined Participation Eligibility Policy

Any individual who receives a paycheck from To Be Determined is eligible to make elective deferrals to the Employer’s 403(b) TSA Plan. This includes all regular full-time or part-time employees, all substitute teachers, and even student employees. To Be Determined encourages you to take advantage of this excellent supplemental retirement savings plan.

2019 403(b) TSA Announcement for To Be Determined


Supplemental Retirement Saving Opportunities

To Be Determined has contracted with Carruth Compliance Consulting (“CCC”) to act as the independent Third Party Administrator (TPA) for the TSA Plan.

All part-time and full-time employees are eligible to contribute.

You may begin making elective deferrals, change deferral amounts, change vendors, and/or discontinue deferrals in the TSA Plan at any time, subject to payroll deadlines.

  • If your 50th birth date occurs on or before December 31, 2019, you are eligible to defer an additional $6,000.00, for a total of $25,000.00, provided your compensation is large enough to allow the extra deferral.

Participant Responsibilities

Participants are responsible for monitoring account activity regularly for accuracy (e.g., deposits of your contributions), updating contact and beneficiary information. If you believe that a problem may exist, please contact CCC (see contact information below) or your employer.
