- Helps you accumulate important retirement savings that will supplement your pension benefit in retirement.
About Automatic Enrollment
If you were newly hired on or after July 1, 2012, and are a new permanent full-time or part-time employee, you were automatically enrolled (unless you opted out) at a 1% contribution each pay period. You can opt out of automatic enrollment by accessing your account and adjusting your contribution to zero. Whether you opt out or not, you can access your account at any time in the future to adjust your contribution. University and previous temporary or seasonal non-benefit-eligible employees are excluded from automatic enrollment. If you were newly hired on or after July 1, 2012 and left state employment on or after January 31, 2017, at rehire your contribution will be what was previously on file.
