How it Works

SACT is a voluntary investment program that provides retirement income in addition to your basic pension plan. Contributions are invested conservatively in the stock market.

SACT Regular Plan

Contributions are made post-tax. When funds are withdrawn, contributions are not subject to federal tax. However, your earnings are taxable.

SACT Tax-Sheltered Plan

A portion of your salary is tax deferred. Federal income tax is not due on deferred amounts or accumulated earnings until you receive a distribution (payment) from your account.
