Deferred Compensation

​​​​​​​The 457(b) Deferred Compensation and Roth 457(b) Plan (Plan #940080) offers an additional way for employees to save for retirement. 

If you elect to participate in the 457(b), your designated contribution amount will be deducted from your paycheck on a pre-tax basis.  All contributions are invested into the funds of your choosing.  

​The Deferred Compensation Match Program (Prudential 401(a)  - Plan #940070) ​ 

Oakland County will match dollar-for-dollar, what you contribute to either your 457(b) or Roth 457 (b) up to $500* annually.  (*Some bargaining units may differ.  Please contact Lisa Villella for more information​ )
Match money goes into your 401(a) plan.
