In 2014 you may contribute up to $17,500 in pretax or combined pre-tax and post-tax voluntary savings to your TAX-DEFERRED ANNUITY (TDA) PLAN.  If you are age 50 or more by the end of 2014, you may contribute up to an additional $5,500 to your TDA Plan provided you make an election of an allowable catch-up amount.

You can find your current 403b TDA election by accessing your HR self-service at  To make a change in your contribution to the TDA, complete the Salary Reduction Agreement "SRA", below, and also available on the Employee Tab of  If you wish to continue your current deductions, you do not need to submit a new SRA.

If you wish to change your contribution to the TDA Plan, you will need to elect either a flat dollar amount or percentage on a per pay period basis.  You will need to enter an amount of the SRA located below for your convenience.  Enter your pre-tax deductions in Section 1 of the TDA Plan SRA.  You can enter your post-tax Roth deductions in Section 2 of the TDA Plan SRA.  If you are eligible for catch-up contributions enter your election in Section 3 of the TDA Plan SRA.

When completing the SRA, you need to elect either a whole percentage or dollar amount to be deducted from your paycheck.  If the amount selected is greater than your bi-weekly check amount, the form will not be processed.  You cannot elect "Maximum" or put an annual amount as your election.  An election of 100% is also not a valid election, as you must first consider all other required deductions from your paycheck.

Forms can be sent to Faculty Memorial Hall - Room 506, Rose Hill Campus or faxed to 718-817-4929.  Changes are made effective the next available payroll. If you to have the deduction effective in January 2014, please note it on the SRA form.
