In 2009, the South Burlington School District adopted the State of Vermont’s supplemental retirement plans, both 403(b) and 457 savings plans, with Empower Retirement (a.k.a. Great West) as the benefit provider. The State’s retirement system recently made a decision to change to Prudential Retirement to administer these funds. In that light, this change will take place on February 1, 2018. The attached brochure has important details on this transition including the dates of this transition, a blackout period where funds cannot be accessed, how to access your account, and a phone number for questions about this move.
