City of Carmel Retirement Plans

Retirement Plan Summary

The City offers a voluntary 457(b) deferred compensation account to its full-time and part-time employees. Deposits are made through pre-tax payroll deductions, and earnings also grow tax-free. A Roth deferral is also available.

Voluntary deferrals are matched by the City at a rate of 10% per year of service, up to a maximum of 50%. Matching contributions are put into a 401(a) account.

In addition, sworn members of the Carmel Police, who do not participate in Social Security, receive a 401(a) contribution from the City equivalent to what it would have paid into Social Security had the employees participated in the Social Security program. These contributions in lieu of Social Security will not be matched by the City.
