Retirement Savings Plans

NEW! After-tax Roth contributions are now available. The WSU 403(b) and 457(b) retirement savings plans now offer the option to make Roth after-tax contributions in addition to the current pre-tax contributions option. Unlike a traditional pre-tax 403(b), the Roth contribution option allows you to contribute after-tax dollars and then withdraw tax-free dollars from your account when you retire.

WSU offers two retirement savings plans. Enroll and make changes any time after your date of hire. Each plan provides value, tax savings, and superior investment options:
