Understand your retirement options You have 2 plan options: the Pension Plus 2 or the Defined Contribution plan. Both plans have a State of Michigan 401(k) and 457 plan. Employee contributions are placed in the Pension Plus 457 Plan or the Pension Plus 2 457 Plan and the employer match contributions are put into a separate plan, the Pension Plus 401(k) Plan or the Pension Plus 2 401(k) Plan. Speak with An Advisor YOUR RETIREMENT PLAN BENEFITS Tax Savings The amount you contribute to your 401(k) and 457 Plan on a pre-tax basis (before taxes are taken out of your paycheck), that means your current taxable income is reduced by the amount you contribute to retirement. Employer Match You were automatically enrolled in the 457 Plan and your employer automatically began matching your contributions in the 401(k) when you first started. That means your employer is putting money aside for your future along with you! The employer will match up to 5% of your contributions. Control Over Your Future You can take control over the retirement goals you have by contributing to your plan now. Social Security typically only covers a portion of your expenses. Take control by investing in your future.
