Experts suggest replacing at least 80% of your income in retirement. KPERS & Social Security won't be enough. You need to save on your own. But how do you start?
KPERS 457 is the State of Kansas deferred compensation plan. It’s a voluntary savings plan for all state employees and some local employees.
With KPERS 457, investing is easy. One option is a Target Retirement Fund. Just choose the fund closest to the year you plan to retire, and the fund will do the rest.
KPERS oversees KPERS 457 with your best interest in mind. It’s part of our fiduciary commitment. And KPERS 457 is in tune with how the two plans work together. You can count on KPERS 457 to be a trusted partner.
You can enroll online if you work for a State agency, otherwise you'll need the paper form. Please contact your HR office to make sure you get the right one.
