Starting early has its advantages
You may contribute as much as 100% of your annual includible compensation up to the maximum IRS contribution limit.
You might be eligible to contribute additional catch-up amounts if you meet the following conditions.
You are always 100% vested in your own contributions.
Accessing your money before retirement
Money can be withdrawn from your 403(b) plan in these events:
- Attaining age 59½ (employee contributions only)
- Retirement or separation from service (distributions where the employee retires or separates from service on or after age 55 are not subject to the 10% early withdrawal federal tax penalty)
- Your death or total disability
- Hardship withdrawals (employee contributions only)
In addition, you must begin taking distributions once you reach age 70½ or you retire, whichever is later.
Bear in mind that income taxes are payable upon withdrawal. Generally, an IRS 10% tax penalty will apply to withdrawals made before age 59½, unless an exception applies (such as you become disabled, die or retire after attaining age 55.)
Loans are not allowed from this plan
