For those of you who are new to the district, or to financial planning, a 403(b) or 457 retirement plan acts very similarly to a 401(k) plan and provides several benefits including contributions to the plan are tax deductible, meaning that you do not pay taxes on contributions made to the plan. Roth Contributions can be made, where taxes are paid at the time of contribution. Loans or hardship withdrawal can be taken from the account if certain circumstances are met. Contribution limits are much higher than the limits on the IRAs. Southside ISD works with National Benefits Services to provide this plan.
