Roth 457 is here! Learn more or log into your account to save with post tax contributions now.

A Defined Contribution Plan administered by OPERS

As a state employee, you can save additional money for retirement and reduce the amount of current state and federal income tax you pay each year by participating in SoonerSave. You can supplement your OPERS benefit by contributing and investing pre-tax dollars into the 457 Deferred Compensation Plan. Even better, the State of Oklahoma provides an employer match of $25 per month through the 401(a) Savings Incentive Plan. Contributions and any earnings in both plans grow tax-deferred until money is withdrawn.

Your SoonerSave Plan also offers a Roth 457 option. With the Roth option, you pay taxes on your contributions now so you don’t have to later. You also get the benefit of not paying taxes on the earnings.
