You can elect to contribute to the Plan up to the annual IRS limit through pre-tax salary deferrals. NYU provides a non-elective contribution of 5% of your base salary. In addition, if you make employee contributions, NYU will make a matching contribution on your behalf with respect to your employee contributions up to 5% of your base salary.

The compensation eligible for calculating the NYU matching and non-elective contributions to the NYU Retirement Plan is your base salary only. The compensation eligible for calculating an employee contribution to the NYU Retirement Plan is your total cash compensation for the pay period. Your total cash compensation includes base salary and overtime pay. If you receive any form of additional compensation, your employee contribution will increase on a per paycheck basis.
