403b-457 Match

It has recently come to our attention that not everyone eligible for the 403B/457 district match is receiving it even though they are contributing to a plan. We have filed a grievance about it but need to figure out who has been effected by this. We also want to bring an awareness around this so even for those who are not currently contributing but might in the future that we don’t end up repeating the issue. Below is a breakdown of who is eligible for what.
