The 457 Deferred Compensation Plan is a tax-deferred program offered by the County of Monterey through a contracted financial institution. This voluntary plan allows participants to save for retirement now and pay taxes later by a contributing portion of their salaries to the plan through payroll deductions. These plans are offered to the employees of state and local governments, subdivisions of state governments or certain eligible key employees of tax exempt organizations.
The current quarter rate (7/1/15 through 9/30/15) on Monterey County's Custom Stable Value Fund (CSVF) or fixed fund is 2.00%.
