America Saves Week


February 25 - March 2, 2019

According to GOBanking Rates’ 2017 Retirement Survey, about one-third of Americans have nothing saved for retirement. America Saves Week is a national effort to set a savings goal, make a savings plan, and save automatically.

It’s a lot easier to spend than save, but getting into a saving mindset now could make a big difference later. Start saving today by contributing to the Voluntary Investment Plan!

To save pre-tax funds for retirement, CWU faculty and staff may contribute to the Voluntary Investment Plan (VIP). The VIP is a tax-deferred 403(b) retirement savings opportunity available through payroll deduction.

Participation in the VIP is flexible and convenient - you may enroll at any time. You may contribute as little as 1% per pay period, or as much as allowed by federal law.

Setting up your contribution is easy!

The VIP plan document is available online under CWU Policy 2-30-220. If there is any discrepancy between this overview and the plan document, the plan document governs.
