Retirement Savings, Simplified

Plain and simple, the deferred comp plan is a retirement savings plan for public employees. Even if retirement isn't your #1 priority right now, that's okay, getting started is the most important step. You can always make changes later. Here's how easy it is to get started:

  1. Enroll
  2. Choose what percentage to save with each paycheck (this will come out of your check automatically).
  3. Choose an investment option. Don't worry, if you're not sure what to pick, you will be defaulted into one of our custom Missouri Target Date Funds, which offer a diversified portfolio of investments.
  4. That's it! Monitor your account and make adjustments as your financial picture takes shape.
