Deferred Compensation is a savings and investment plan for your retirement. The Vermont State Retirement System oversees the investment options and established the plan. All contributions can be made on a pre-tax or after tax basis depending upon the accounts you elect.
Participation in the Deferred Compensation plan is voluntary. You determine how much you wish to contribute to the plan, that amount is then deducted from your paycheck and transferred directly to your Deferred Compensation account.
The Deferred Compensation plan is available to all state employees and to employees of other public agencies such as municipalities, school districts, boards, and commissions if the public agency has elected to offer it.
