Thorndale ISD offers a 457(b) retirement plan as a way to help you save for life beyond your prime working years. Opening a plan can help you build savings with the convenience of contributing directly from your salary on pre-tax or after-tax (Roth) basis. You have the ability to start, stop, increase or decrease contributions any time.
Enrolling in a 457(b) savings plan can help bring financial stability and security for life upon retirement. You can lower your current taxes or earn tax-free income, bridge your retirement income gap, and get closer financial independence. Unlike 403(b) plans, early withdrawals from a 457(b) account are not subject to a 10 percent early withdrawal tax upon separating from the employer.
