Deferred Compensation Program

Can I roll assets into my Deferred Compensation Plan?

Yes, if you have other retirement accounts in a former employer’s 401(k), 403(b), deferred compensation plan, or in an Individual Retirement Account you can roll those assets into your deferred compensation plan.

When I leave employment, may lump sum payments for accrued but unused vacation leave be deferred to the Plan?

Yes, provided that those deferrals are received by the Plan no later than 75 calendar days after your last day of employment, or within the calendar year you terminated employment.
