EQUI-PATH 403(b) Mutual Fund

A 457(b) deferred compensation plan, which is like a 401(k) for public service employees, can help supplement your pension. It’s specifically designed for those who work for the state or local government, has the flexibility to adjust as your needs change and can help you turn your salary into a more comfortable retirement.

Your pension and 457(b) plan work together

How can a 457(b) deferred compensation plan help you save?

  • Every dollar counts – Start saving whatever amount works for you, start or stop, decrease or increase your contributions up to the federal maximum, at any time.
  • It’s automatic – You pay yourself first, because your savings are deducted right from your paycheck.
  • It’s flexible – Select the investments you’re most comfortable with – and change them when you want.
  • You won’t pay taxes while you’re saving – Your contributions into the 457(b) plan are deducted from your salary before income taxes, meaning that taxes are deferred until you withdraw the money from your account, which is typically when you’re retired and often in a lower tax bracket. That means all of your earnings stay invested, letting your money grow faster than it would in a taxable account.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They get you in and forget ya ! I feel like they aren't upfront about fees and you pay a lot for 2 and 3 star funds. Not much return and the person I signed up under I haven't seen or heard from since I gave my money and sign the papers. Before that it was a phone call every day . Not worth the fees.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rude and Unhelpful I called about my application and told that there was information missing. When I asked when I was going to be informed about it, they told me a letter had been sent 4 days prior to my call (which I had not received and one week later still no sign of it). I pointed out to her that during a prior call I was told that I just needed to send in the application form and they had everything else. Apparently since that call, all of the other documentation disappeared. I ended up hanging up on her she was so rude.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mostly good service, but too many excuses My rep. is friendly and usually answers my questions. I try to reach out to him 1-2 times per year to discuss my investments. He is always gracious in choosing to come to my workplace to meet with me. HOwever, he frequently makes excuses for why he did not follow through with my requests. This happens so often that I have decided that I will move my investments to a different company this summer. It has progressed beyond 3-strikes. I asked my rep. 15 days a go to send me some info and I am still waiting for it. I am not looking forward to hearing yet another excuse.
