The Supplemental Retirement Plan is available to all Northeastern University employees (with the exception of students enrolled in and regularly attending classes at Northeastern University). In addition to allowing non-benefits eligible employees, and employees who are not yet eligible for the Basic Plan, the Supplemental Retirement Plan has distribution options not available in the Basic Retirement Plan, such as hardship withdrawals, loans, and in-service withdrawals. For additional information, please read the Universal Availability Notice (PDF).
Participation in this plan is voluntary and Faculty and Staff are able to join at any time. Enrollment will become effective the pay period following receipt of enrollment materials.
In order to enroll, you must complete a Northeastern Salary Reduction Agreement (PDF) and return it to HRM/Benefits at 250 Columbus Place. You must also establish an account online with Fidelity and/or TIAA-CREF. These sites allow you to choose your investment options and designate your beneficiaries.
