2016 Retirement Choice Period Extended

Your SECOND CHANCE for retirement plan enrollment is until December 10, 2015. It is important that you log into the new online portal during this time to make your retirement plan elections for 2016. If you do not complete enrollment, your contributions, as of January 1, 2016, will be automatically invested in an age-appropriate Vanguard Target Retirement Fund through the JHU Select Funds. If you have already enrolled, you do not need to do anything else.

What’s Changing for 2016

  • Launch of the new Retirement Choice online portal for enrolling in the plans, viewing JHU retirement plan balances and managing contributions.
  • Introduction of the new JHU Select Funds, a group of investments which are monitored by the university based on performance and cost.
  • Elimination of American Century and VALIC as investment providers.
  • Introduction of Brokerage Services, providing thousands of additional mutual fund options.
