The Deferred Compensation Program (DCP) helps you save for retirement on a pre-tax basis, offering the options you need to develop a personal investment strategy. With DCP, you authorize your employer to postpone or defer a part of your income, before taxes are calculated, and have that money invested in your DCP account. Both the income you save and the earnings on your investments grow tax-deferred to add to your future retirement and Social Security benefits.
How does Deferred Compensation Work?
With DCP, you may elect to defer a portion of your salary until retirement or separation from service. Automatic payroll deduction makes savings easy as the amount you choose to defer is taken from your gross income before taxes. For example, if you are in the 15% tax bracket, for every $100 you earn, you keep only $85 because $15 is withheld for federal income taxes. If you elect to defer $100 into a DCP, your take home pay is only reduced by $85 because the $100 is deferred before taxes are calculated. When deciding how much to save, consider adding that extra income to your deferral amount. It can have a significant impact at the time you retire.
Should you have any questions or would like more information on the Washington State Deferred Compensation Program, contact the DCP at:

Optional Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) 403(b)
The District offers 403(b) Plans to eligible employees in order to help save for retirement. Participation is optional, allowing you to make pre-tax salary deferral contributions via payroll deduction. One of the benefits of participating in the Plan is the ability to defer from taxation salary that would otherwise be currently taxable and also defer income taxes on the earnings credited to your account. Visit the RSD307 TSA Consulting Group webpage.
Long Term Care Options
All Washington State employees will be required to have a Long Term Care program in place as of January 1, 2022. You have the option of choosing your own plan (billed directly to you) or defaulting into the Washington State program through a payroll deduction. Long term care is when a person needs nonmedical help with the activities of daily living, such as bathing, cooking and taking medications. Below are links to both the Washington State Plan as well as information for National Guardian Life administered by American Fidelity for those RSD307 employees 40 years of age and older. Currently, we are unable to locate an option for our younger employees.
