Benefits Eligible Faculty and Administrators

Eligible Faculty and Administrators are required to contribute 5% of base pay into the Fordham University Retirement Plan. The University will also make a contribution of 5% of base pay to the Retirement Plan. Upon the completion of five years of service, the University’s contribution into the Retirement Plan will increase to 11%.

Employees may also make voluntary contributions to the Fordham University Retirement Plan. All employees are eligible to contribute without a waiting period. The voluntary contributions are unmatched and are subject to the IRS limits for individual annual contribution amounts. They can be pre-tax or after-tax (Roth) contributions. Contributions to either or both plans can be made to investment options offered by TIAA and Fidelity Investments.
