Eligible employees have the option to set aside money for retirement on a voluntary basis in regular pretax contributions to the University retirement plan, up to the annual IRS limit. The annual maximum for 2021 is $19,500. If you are age 50 or over, a "catch-up" provision allows you to contribute additional $6,500 into your account. It is also important to note that Willamette's contributions do not affect your maximum annual contribution limit.

You can start contributing toward your retirement the month following your hire date.
