All eligible CalPERS 457 Plan participants will be able to make Roth contributions to the Plan as of January 1, 2024.

Beginning on January 1, the CalPERS 457 Plan will allow for Roth contributions from all actively employed participants to comply with the SECURE 2.0 Act of 2022. There will be no action required to add Roth for your agency. CalPERS will automatically add the Roth option for all agencies that have adopted the CalPERS 457 Plan.

Learn more about the SECURE 2.0 Act’s impact on the CalPERS 457 Plan now and beginning in 2024. For questions about the SECURE 2.0 Act’s impact on the CalPERS 457 Plan, please contact CalPERS by phone at 800-696-3907 or email at CalPERS_457_Plan@calpers.ca.gov.
