Plan in which a public employer (such as a university, state, county, or municipality) sponsors a retirement savings program, named for the section of the Internal Revenue Code that permits it. This plan allows the employer, upon agreement with the employee, to reduce the employee's salary by a specific amount and invest this amount, with pre-tax dollars, in various financial instruments. Upon termination of employment, the principal amount invested and any investment earnings are distributed to the terminating employee or the employee's estate. A deferred FIXED DOLLAR ANNUITY or VARIABLE DOLLAR ANNUITY are among the financial instruments that can be used to fund this plan.
