Helping You Plan for Your Financial Future

You can start saving for your financial future from the first day of employment with Prince George’s County through the County’s Deferred Compensation 457(b) Plan. 

In accordance with provisions of Section 457 of the Internal Revenue Service Code, Prince George's County has established a Deferred Compensation Program for employees in a permanent status to save money for retirement while saving money on taxes every pay day. 

Employees will pay no state or federal income taxes on the amount deferred or on the earnings in their account during the working years. Taxes are only paid on the amount withdrawn, after retirement or separation from employment with the County.
