Congratulations to the Human Resources (EBSD and EMACS-Dev) and Labor Relations teams on their award-winning 457(b) Automatic Enrollment Marketing Campaign. The goal of this campaign is to educate eligible employees about how and when they would be automatically enrolled into the 457(b) plan.

Since the inception of this program, more than 6,500 County employees have been enrolled in the 457(b) deferred compensation plan resulting in eligible participation increasing from approximately 55% to more than 85%. Of the 6,500+ enrolled since 2019, more than 4,100 participants were eligible to receive matching contributions from the County. By enrolling in these plans, County employees now have an easier time closing the gap between their current savings and their retirement income goals of the future.
