Deferred Compensation

The City of St. Louis offers a Deferred Compensation 457 Plan that employees can participate in to help save for their future.

Plan Highlights

A governmental 457(b) deferred compensation plan (457 plan) is a retirement savings plan that allows eligible employees to supplement any existing retirement and pension benefits by saving and investing before-tax dollars through a voluntary salary contribution. Contributions and any earnings on contributions are tax-deferred until money is withdrawn. Distributions are subject to ordinary income tax.
