To find out more about setting up a 403(b)/457(b) account and to determine the best option for you, go the OMNI MCPS plan page to view the current list of investment providers. First, select a provider to setup a 403(b) or 457(b) account. Once your account is established with one of the MCPS participating investment providers, you will work with OMNI to complete an OMNI Salary Reduction Agreement (SRA) to initiate your investment.
Once you have an established 403/457 account, staff, former staff and retirees initiate changes, rollovers, withdrawals, and loans directly from the OMNI MCPS plan page, or by calling the OMNI call center for assistance. All 403(b)/457(b) paperwork is coordinated through your provider and/or OMNI. MCPS administration no longer signs/approves 403/457 paperwork.
