Looking for ways to add to your retirement savings?

University of Florida

The new year is a great time to review your savings plans to ensure you’re maximizing your contributions. In addition to the state retirement plans offered, as a UF employee you may also participate in a 457(b) Deferred Compensation plan and/or voluntary 403(b) plans to supplement your retirement via payroll deductions.

Both the 457(b) and 403(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.
