If you will work over 1000 hours in a calendar year, you are immediately vested in our 403 (B) retirement plan with an employer contribution of 6.5% of your salary with an additional 2% if matched by you. You can contribute as well up to the legal limit for your age. As you are vested in the program immediately, those dollars are yours to take with you upon termination of employment.
