This is an important decision, so make sure you take advantage of the following resources to help you make the choice that’s right for you. At the same time, it pays to enroll as soon as you’ve decided. Here’s why:
- If you wait 90 days to enroll or default into Pension Choice, you lose up to three months of UC contributions and service credit — delaying vesting and decreasing your benefits.
- If you wait until the deadline to enroll in Savings Choice, you lose up to three months of UC and personal pretax contributions — reducing your retirement savings contributions for the year.
So make your choice and start building your retirement benefits as soon as you can.
UC offers you one-on-one, personal help with your retirement benefits decisions. Meet with a UC Retirement Planner by phone or in person, when and where it’s convenient for you. This service is available at no cost to you.
