Pre-Tax Savings Plans


Retirement is the time in your life when you can put yourself first and do the things you’ve always wanted to do.  Hostos Community College offers a variety of investment options through automatic payroll deduction to two kinds of voluntary tax deferred plans to help you achieve your retirement goals:

Tax Deferred Annuities

The Tax Sheltered Annuity 403 (b) offers five Fund Sponsors from which to invest with TIAA-Cref and TRS. The New York State Deferred Compensation Plan is administered by New York State.
The annual contribution limits for the Supplemental retirement plans are $22,500 for under age 50. Age 50 or over, you may contribute $30,000.

Special Rules
You may enroll in only ONE tax deferred annuity program. The IRS does not permit retroactive participation to a prior year. The IRS sets calendar-year limits on the maximum amount of money you can contribute to a TDA. The IRS may adjust these limits from time to time.
Employees may participate in the tax deferred 457 program in addition to participating in a regular tax deferred annuity.
