My place of employment's TIAA benefits plan states: A voluntary retirement plan is available after one year of employment to all employees over age 21 who work at least 1000 hours per year. Participating employees are required to contribute a minimum of 2% (up to a government-defined maximum) of their annual salary to the TIAA/CREF retirement plan to be eligible to receive the employer contribution of 5% of their annual salary. Optional Supplemental Retirement Annuity (SRA) in TIAA-CREF Mutual Funds and IRAs are also available. I am assuming that the limits for contributions - be they in the defined contribution plan to receive the employer match plus anything that would go into the optional supplemental retirement annuity cannot exceed 403b limits, correct? So the 2018 limits of $18,500 for under age 50, or $24,500 for age 50+ would be it - combined, yes? One couldn't put the maximum in the defined contribution plan, and then add more in the optional SRA. I'm pretty sure the answer is no, but thought I'd get clarification. The employer does have a 457b plan, but it is private and only for cabinet members (our highest paid employees). Just searching for ways to max out beyond the 403b and Roth IRA besides going to taxable investing. TIA
