Safe Harbor-Defined Contributions (DCP)

Part-time, seasonal, temporary employees, and non-exempt student employees participate in the Defined Contribution Plan (the “DC Plan”) as Safe Harbor participants. You are automatically enrolled in the DC Plan as long as you are employed by the University of California. Safe Harbor participants automatically contribute, on a pretax basis, 7.5% of their wages beginning the first day of an eligible appointment. You may also make voluntary after-tax contributions to the DC Plan.
