Watch Your Retirement Savings GROW

To-Do List:

The University of Utah has two supplemental retirement plans.  All university employees are eligible to defer pay to the University’s 403(b) and 457(b) Plans through payroll deduction.

Deferrals can be made before taxes are calculated, which may allow you to save more.  You can save a minimum of $12.50 per paycheck up to the IRS maximum of $18,000 in each savings plan.  If you are age 50 or older, you can contribute an additional $6,000 per year for a total of $24,000 to each plan.  The IRS limits increase to $18,500 ($24,500) in 2018.


Have a Non-Urgent Injury or Illness? 

Visit RedMed or use Virtual Visits for non-urgent injuries and minor illnesses – these visits cost you and the Employee Health Care Plan less than urgent care facilities.

The RedMed Employee Clinic, located on the ground floor of the Union Building, is available to all employees at no cost.  Providers at RedMed assess and treat work-related injuries and other non-emergency medical conditions. See the RedMed web page at hr.utah.edu/RedMed for information.
