    Changes in the Administration of the New Jersey State Employees Deferred Compensation Plan

    On October 25, 2005, the State Treasury and New Jersey State Employers Deferred Compensation Board announced that Prudential Retirement, a business of New Jersey-based Prudential Fianancial, has been selected as the third party administrator for the New Jersey State Employees Deferred Compensation Plan (NJSEDCP). Because of this upcoming change in the administration of the NJSEDCP, effective January 1, 2006, some of the information provided below may no longer be accurate. The Division of Pensions will provide procedural updates regarding the NJSEDCP as soon as they become available.

Determining Eligibility

Subject to the approval of the State Treasurer and the Deferred Compensation Board, the eligibility requirements for enrollment dictate that the individual must be an employee of the State of New Jersey, or an eligible agency, authority, commission, or instrumentality of State government that has an independent corporate existence. (Click here for a list of participating employers.) As well, the employee must either be presently enrolled in a New Jersey state-administered retirement system, including the Alternate Benefit Program, or have accrued at least twelve (12) consecutive months of employment.

The exceptions are those employees not required to enroll in the retirement system who are considered permanent immediately, or that have accrued at least twelve consecutive months of employment, or any individual employed through a Governor's appointment.

Individuals employed through a county, township, or municipality and not paid directly through the State of New Jersey or one of the State's agencies, authorities, commissions or instrumentalities are not eligible to participate in the New Jersey State Employees Deferred Compensation Plan.
