Deferred Compensation Plan

Vantage Credit Union’s Deferred Compensation Plan (DCP) is a federally-insured, tax-deferred savings plan that enables you to set aside a portion of your paycheck each pay period for retirement.

Who is eligible?

  • Employees of participating school districts
  • Employees of participating companies

What separates our plan from annuity options?

1. Safety and Convenience

  • Your account is federally insured up to $250,000
  • The current rate is paid on ALL funds in the account, not just the dollar amount deposited during that rate period
  • Friendly, local Vantage representatives are available to answer your questions (unlike annuities where you usually have to call someone out-of-state for help)

2. No market exposure or investment risk

  • You elect a guaranteed rate
  • Please call for the current rate on fixed- and variable-rate options

3. Flexible withdrawal schedules

  • “Annuity factors” aren't used to determine your withdrawal payments
  • Account balance continues to earn interest throughout your withdrawal period
  • Flexibility to change withdrawal options to meet your retirement needs

Reduce your taxable income

  • Deposits are tax-deferred allowing you to reduce your taxable income while saving for retirement
  • Deposit a portion of your paycheck pursuant to IRS Code Section 457 (e)(15)
  • Special “catch up” provision allows additional deposits during each of your last three years before retirement
