Retirement Plan

Roanoke College sponsors a 403(b) defined contribution retirement plan through TIAA.  After one year of service in a regular position, the college will begin contributing a designated percentage of an employee's base salary. Employees who have prior 403(b) retirement plans may begin participating first of the month following employment.

The College also sponsors a supplemental 403(b) tax deferred annuity plan.  Employees may begin voluntary contributions to this plan immediately upon hire.
