• We are pleased to announce the 403(b) Retirement Plan as an added benefit to our employees.  The 403(b) Retirement Plan acts very similar to a 401(k) Plan and provides several benefits, including:

    - Contributions to the plan are held in a governmental retirement account with tax benefits.

    - Money may be accessed for various reasons.  See the attached notice for distribution reasons.

    - Contribution limits are much higher  than the limits in IRAs.

    More information on 403(b) Plans, including a list of Approved Vendors can be found here: http://www.nbsbenefits.com/non-erisa-403b-forms/ .

    We are excited to offer this valuable benefit to our employees, and encourage everyone to participate.  Once you have established an account with a Vendor, please complete the “Salary Reduction Agreement” form indicating how much you would like to contribute.  After that, please return it to the address or fax # provided on the bottom of the form and they will take care of the rest.
