Voluntary Retirement Savings Account
UC offers its employees a voluntary pre-tax retirement savings account (403(b)). Employees who want to participate in the 403(b) plan designate a portion of their gross salary to be contributed on a pretax basis, thus reducing the participant’s taxable income. Taxes on contributions and any earnings are deferred (that is, postponed) until the participant withdraws the money.
