Roth Communication July 2021
The College Retirement Plan Roth option is now active. You can elect to make Roth contributions through the Transamerica site:
After you login to the Transamerica site, select "Details", then "Manage" and "Contributions". Once you are on the "Contributions" screen you will see the separate spaces to enter pre-tax versus Roth contributions.
More information on Roth is available on the Human Resources site. This includes a link to a brief webinar, "Is Roth Right for You?", which also has instructions on how to add the Roth option.
Please note that if you are not interested in the Roth option, you do not have to do anything; any contributions that you make will continue on a pre-tax basis. Only employees who actively elect to direct some or all of their contributions to the Roth feature (through the Transamerica site) will be enrolled in the Roth option.
