Ivy Tech Community College is pleased to provide you with a retirement benefit to supplement your retirement income. No one source of income by itself is likely to be sufficient for your retirement needs. The income from your Ivy Tech retirement plans will add to the income you will receive from Social Security, retirement income from other employers, and any other investments you may hold. Our 403(b) Defined Contribution retirement plan offers you many advantages in comparison to utilizing a typical savings account. With the Ivy Tech retirement plan, the money contributed on your behalf by the College is not taxed. Additionally, the interest you earn on the money in your account grows without being taxed, so the total grows much quicker than without this advantage.  Your contributions are directed to Transamerica Retirement Solutions.

Eligibility

An eligible employee is an employee hired in a permanent position, who is regularly scheduled to work at least 1000 hours per calendar year.  Eligible employees do not include student employees, adjunct faculty, and contract employees.

Contributions

When you become eligible to receive the College contribution, the College will make per pay contributions equal to 3% of your base compensation.  The College contributions are immediately 100% vested.
