Alternative Retirement Plan (ARP)

An ARP is a defined contribution plan, which means the retirement benefit will be based on the amount contributed to the employees' account plus any income, expenses, gains and losses allocated to the account.

The employee is 100% vested on both the employee and employer contributions regardless of length of employment with North Central State College. This means that at whatever time an employee terminates employment with the college, the employee is entitled to the entire amount of their ARP account.

There are a number of ARP providers who offer a variety of investment options to suit every individual's needs:
