Automatic: Your employer will contribute 4% of your earnable compensation to an employer-funded RSP 401(a) defined contribution account.
Matching: As an RSP Non-Hybrid member, your employer will also match contributions you make to your 457(b) DCP account. The match may be as much as 50% of the deferral you make to your 457(b) DCP account, up to 1% of pay. The additional match will be made to the employer-funded RSP 401(a) account.
Note that although you may begin making voluntary deferrals to the 457(b) DCP upon commencing service with the City or BCPS, matching contributions will not begin until your RSP membership is effective (180 days from the date you began service).
