Retirement Planning

West Virginia Northern Community College offers the opportunity for you to plan for your long-term security through retirement programs. As a part of the comprehensive compensation package, the college will contribute to a retirement fund for eligible participants. Additionally, all eligible employees have the opportunity to make their own contributions to a supplemental retirement account.

401(A) Group Retirement Plan
Full-time employees are required to participate in a group retirement plan through TIAA. Employees must contribute 6% of their gross salary to their retirement accounts, and that is matched with a 6% contribution by the college.

403(B) & 457 Supplemental Retirement Plans
Full-time employees may participate in 403(b) and/or 457 supplemental retirement plans through TIAA. Additionally, employees must complete the enrollment process with TIAA. Please contact Human Resources for assistance.

Beneficiary Updates
Please remember to keep your beneficiary information up-to-date with PEIA and TIAA.  If you are not sure who your beneficiaries are please reach out to PEIA and TIAA. It is important that you control who will receive your assets in the event of your death.
