Retirement Savings

With the hurried pace of our everyday lives, it is difficult sometimes to slow down and plan for the future. Although retirement may seem far away, actions you take today can make a big difference when you reach retirement.

Midway ISD offers retirement programs to its employees through the use of 403(b) tax deferred annuities and 457 deferred compensation and the Teachers Retirement System (TRS). These plans allow employees to save designated amounts out of their paychecks before tax and place them into a variety of mutual funds, variable annuities and fixed annuities. Any earnings grow tax deferred until withdrawn and are intended to supplement your TRS Pension Plan.
