Enrolling in the 457(b) Deferred Compensation Plan

We maintain regional representatives to serve all campus locations throughout the state. To make an appointment to enroll in the 457 Plan with Voya, please contact your campus representative or e-mail us.

Your local representative will explain to you the role supplemental retirement savings play in conjunction with your State Retirement System (STRS, OPERS, SERS). Your local representative will guide you through the enrollment process and:

  • Explain each plan to you and help you determine which plan is best suited to your needs 
  • Describe the product to you 
  • Develop an asset allocation model to illustrate your investment and retirement objectives 
  • Select the investment options that will help you pursue your objectives 
  • Designate a beneficiary for your plan benefits 
  • Explain the total contribution limits for which you are eligible 

As a client, your local representative will provide you with Annual Reviews (or more frequently if you request), and will be available to you for any servicing needs or questions you may have.
