Deferred Compensation Plan

Deferred Compensation Plan

If you are a benefits-eligible employee, you can choose to participate in King County’s 457(b) Deferred Compensation Plan to assist in your long-term retirement planning. You can elect either pre-tax or after-tax (ROTH) contributions in an array of investment choices from T. Rowe Price.

You decide how much to defer through payroll deduction—up to the specified IRS contribution limits:

  • 2023: $22,500 per year ($30,000 if you’re 50 or older)

For plan details, see the Deferred Compensation Plan Document.
