Considering Roth 457?

How Roth contributions work

Roth contributions are deducted from your paycheck after taxes are taxken out, and any earnings are also tax-free for qualified withdrawals.

On the plus side

  • This may be a good option if you expect to be in the same tax bracket you are in now, or higher, when you retire.
  • Money you save today has the potential for long-term growth if you don't plan to access it for many years.
