The contribution limits for employees who participate in the voluntary 403(b) and 457(b) plans has increased from $18,500 to $19,000 in 2019. The catch-up contribution limit for employees age 50 and over who participate in these plans remains unchanged at $6,000.
This means if you are under age 50 in 2019, the maximum amount you may contribute into your voluntary retirement plan is $19,000. If you are age 50 or above, the maximum amount you may contribute is $25,000 ($19,000 plus $6,000 catch-up). Employees interested in changing their retirement contribution amount may contact the Human Resources Department at x2470 or e-mail Ms. Kristen Bjorne at email@example.com and request a Salary Reduction Agreement.

On Tuesday, November 27, NMU will hold a Day of Giving to coincide with the Giving Tuesday global event. Last year, the NMU campus community, the Marquette region and alumni from around the world came together to give generously on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This year, we are focusing support on programs that provide direct support to students and faculty through the Northern Fund, the Flexible Aid Fund, scholarships and the NMU Food Pantry. Of course, we appreciate gifts that support any department, program or initiative.
You can learn more and easily give online at nmu.edu/dayofgiving.
On the Day of Giving, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., non-perishable food items and hygiene products can be brought to the Beaumier Heritage and Alumni Center.
