All employees (with the exception of student employees) of the departments listed below are eligible to participate in the plan. If you are no longer employed by one of these departments, then you may not make any further contributions to the plan.

Eligible departments:


Enrolling in the Plan is a matter of three easy steps:

FIRST, select one of the Plan's contract providers: Fidelity Investments, TIAA or VALIC. You can find information about each provider online (click on their icons below), or by meeting one of the firms' representatives when they are visiting your department or campus.

SECOND, establish a new account with your provider. Enrollment with each of the three providers must be completed online. Click on one of the icons to get started.

Fidelity Investments

Reminder: You must print the final page of your successful enrollment on your provider’s web site, documenting that you have established your new account. BRING the page to your campus/department benefits administrator, along with your Salary Reduction Agreement.

THIRD, complete and sign a PDF Salary Reduction Agreement. The Salary Reduction Agreement is where you indicate the percentage of your salary, or a flat dollar amount, that will be contributed to your new account each pay period.

Bring your completed Salary Reduction Agreement to your department/campus benefits administrator. They will confirm your enrollment (provider web page print-out noted above), your Salary Reduction Agreement, and ensure that your contribution percentage is entered in the payroll system.
