The Department of Personnel Administration (DPA) is responsible for administering the Savings Plus Program. Funding is provided by fees charged to plan participants. Savings Plus is a long-term savings program that gives members two ways to save for retirement. The State of California offers eligible employees two plans authorized by the Internal Revenue Code. A Deferred Compensation plan under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 457 and a Thrift Plan authorized by IRC 401(k). Both plans offer you:

  • The potential for rapid growth of your account with pre-tax investing and tax deferred investment earnings;
  • A variety of investment options to choose from;
  • Convenient payroll deductions; and Program flexibility to manage your accounts.
