Retirement and Other Savings Plans

Tax Sheltered Annuity Plan
AtlantiCare offers three tax-sheltered annuity (TSA) plans for you to choose from. The TSA is a salary reduction plan under Internal Revenue Code 403(B) for non-profit business units. It is designed to help you save for retirement, on a pre-tax basis, thereby reducing your current taxable income. You are eligible to participate immediately upon hiring. If you are employed in one of AtlantiCare's for-profit businesses, you are eligible to participate in a 401(k) plan.

Pension Plan
AtlantiCare will provide you annually with a non elective fully vested contribution equal to 3% of your eligible compensation to either our 403(b) or 401(k) plan, depending on the business unit where you work.  Metlife administers the plans.  To receive this contribution, you must be at least 18, on payroll the last day of the plan year and have worked 1000 hours in that year.

529 College Savings Plan
The 529 plan enables you to make post-tax contributions to Scholars Choice College Savings program.  This program helps families save and pay for college expenses with a 529 plan that is easy to set up, flexible and available nationwide. The major advantages are that your account balances grow free from federal income taxes and all withdrawals used for qualified higher education expenses are federal income tax-free.  Contributions can be made via payroll deduction. Available to employees budgeted to work at least 24 hours per week.

Flexible Savings Account (FSA)
AtlantiCare makes it possible for you to receive a tax break by allowing you to participate in a Health Care and/or Dependent Care Flexible Spending Account Plan. Your FSA contributions are made each pay period before federal, state and FICA taxes are taken out. As you incur expenses you will receive tax-free reimbursement from the dollars you saved. Additionally, a Transit Reimbursement Plan is available.
