Explore ways to add to your retirement savings

With tax season upon us, now is a great time to review your savings plans to ensure you’re maximizing your contributions. In addition to the mandatory state retirement plans offered — including the voluntary State of Florida Deferred Compensation Plan, or 457(b) — as a UF employee you may also participate in a voluntary 403(b) plan to supplement your retirement via payroll deductions.

Both the 403(b) and 457(b) plans are voluntary savings plans available to faculty, TEAMS, USPS and OPS employees — including housestaff/residents, graduate assistants, postdocs and adjunct faculty. Read on for a breakdown of each plan.

It’s tax time — be on the lookout for your W-2 and 1095-C forms

By now you should be able to access your Form W-2 in myUFL or the ONE.UF application, or you should soon be receiving it in the mail if you did not give consent to access it electronically. In addition to filing your W-2, the IRS requires reporting of health insurance coverage information for the 2023 federal income tax reporting year. While it is not necessary to include the Form 1095-C with your tax return, you’ll need to include your insurance information on your tax return.

While it’s always a good idea to look over your paycheck statement from time to time, it’s especially important at the beginning of the calendar year. By doing so, you can verify your benefits deductions and leave accruals are accurate and up-to-date.
