Forms & Contact Information | Deferred Compensation FAQs

As a public sector employee, you may participate in a Section 457 deferred compensation plan that allows you to save toward retirement by deferring pre-tax dollars through payroll deduction. When you contribute to the Deferred Compensation program with pre-tax dollars, you reduce your taxable income, while contributing to your retirement savings.

For 2015, the normal contribution is $18,000 or 100% of your salary, whichever is less. The “Pre-Retirement” Catch-Up limit is $36,000. The “Age 50” Catch-Up Limit is $24,000. There is no minimum biweekly contribution.

All Full-time or permanent part-time employees are eligible to participate in deferred compensation. Eligible employees can enroll, change or stop deductions at any time. Enrollment and deduction changes will take effect in the month following receipt of your form. Henrico County offers two vendors for the deferred compensation program: Voya and ICMA-RC. Both vendors provide a wide range of investment options to meet the needs of employees saving for retirement. Saving for retirement is important and any amount contributed can be beneficial toward overall retirement savings.

ING has changed its name to Voya Financial effective September 1, 2014. This is a name change only. See voya.com for more information.
