403(b) Universal Availability Notice

403(b) Universal Availability Notice

The Opportunity.

You have the opportunity to save for retirement by participating in the Monroe School District's 403(b) plan ("Plan"). We recommend that all employees view a brief, 3-minute video presentation explaining what a 403(b) plan is, and how to contribute. The video can be viewed at www.403bwhyme.com.

If there are any questions, you may contact The OMNI Group at 877-544-6664.

How Can I Participate?

You can participate in the Plan with pre-tax contributions by completing and submitting a Salary Reduction Agreement ("SRA") online at http://www.omni403b.com/, or by submitting a completed SRA form, which can be found on the same website, to US OMNI either by facsimile to (585) 672-6194 or by mail at 1099 Jay St., Bldg F, Rochester, NY, 14611 ("OMNI").

How Much Can I Contribute Annually?

You may contribute up to $19,000 in 2019; this amount is subject to change annually. If you have at least 15 years of service with your employer or you are at least 50 years old, you may also be able to make additional catch-up contributions. For appropriate limits for your particular circumstances, please contact OMNI's Customer Care Center at 1-877-544- 6664.

What If I Already Have An Account?

If you are already contributing to the Plan, and you want to change your contribution amount or service provider, simply complete and submit a new SRA. See directions above for on-line and paper submission options.

What If I Do Not Want To Contribute?

If you do not want to participate in this program you do not have to do anything.
