FICA Alternative Plan
The FICA Alternative Plan, administered by MetLife, is a 457(b) variable annuity plan for part-time employees in lieu of Social Security. Enrollment in the plan is mandatory.
The funds placed in this account are taken out of the paycheck on a before-tax basis, so you are not taxed on the gross amount. Funds remain tax sheltered until the time they are withdrawn by the participant, subject to the terms of the plan. Also, you can direct your investment choices in variable investment options offered by MetLife.
