Supplemental Retirement Plans


Louisiana Deferred Compensation Plan: Be an Active Participant in Your Future!


LSU offers multiple options to help employees save for the future. The supplemental retirement program includes 403(b), Roth 403(b), 457(b) and Roth 457(b). Employees may make contributions on an after-tax basis under the Roth plans, on a pre-tax basis under the 403(b) and 457(b) plans, or a combination of the two. Please take a moment to review the benefits of a supplemental retirement account and which plan will best help you plan for retirement.
