University Retirement Plans

UNE provides a 403(b) pre-tax and post-tax retirement savings plan opportunity for full- and half-time benefit-eligible employees upon enrollment. Employees can elect to contribute in any combination of the pre-tax and post-tax savings options up to the IRS annual contribution limits. UNE will match actively contributing participants on a dollar-for-dollar basis up to 8% of the employee’s pre-tax salary deferral. UNE will not match participant post-tax contributions (referred to as a Roth).

Employees select their 403(b) retirement plan investment funds directly through Fidelity Investments. Fidelity Investments representatives and their online retirement planning tools can assist with your retirement planning decisions.


  • Regular full- and half-time employees, as defined in the Personnel Handbook, may join the UNE retirement plan.
  • Participation may begin the first possible payroll after your hire and you complete the Fidelity online enrollment process.
  • Please review the Summary Plan Description (PDF) for more eligibility details and consult with Human Resources for specific situations.
