Saving for Retirement

The Navigators partners with you as you save for the future by providing two retirement plans:

the 401(a) and the 403(b) through Fidelity Investments.

Please watch the Ant & Grasshopper video below for more information on both retirement plans.

  • When you become eligible for the 401(a) Basic Retirement Plan, you will begin receiving an amount equal to 5.5% of your income into your personal retirement account.
  • You are eligible to contribute to the 403(b) Supplemental Retirement Plan on day one to begin saving from your own contributions.
  • If you are a commissioned minister with The Navigators, your contributions to these plans will be designated as Ministerial Earnings. Ministerial Earnings is an important IRS designation allows you some additional tax advantages.
