Tax Deferred Multiple Employer 403(b) Plan
Under Section 403(b) of the Internal Revenue Code, employees of educational institutions or tax-exempt organizations can set aside money for retirement on a pre-tax basis.  The employee decides the amount of money to contribute to the program during each pay period, up to a determined maximum amount (the IRS sets an annual dollar limit).  The amount the employee contributes is deducted from pay before federal, state and local income taxes are taken out.

With Randolph-Macon Academy’s 403(b) program, the employee can select to invest in a choice of investment options through TIAA through salary reduction contributions. Randolph-Macon Academy deducts contributions from pay, as elected by the employee, and forwards the money to TIAA, our designated investment company. Currently Randolph-Macon Academy matches dollar-for-dollar up to 4% of salary. Vesting for the employer’s matching portion is based on a 3 year cliff vesting. Each year of service is based on 1000 hours per calendar year and an employee must be employed for 3 years to be vested.
