Retirement and Voluntary Retirement Savings Accounts

Retirement

New Mexico ranks among one of the highest states for Educational Retirement Benefits (ERB). Your retirement contributions are matched by APS to provide the funds for the ERB pension plan. Go to the New Mexico Educational Retirement Benefits website for more information.

Voluntary Retirement Savings Plans

If you are an active APS employee, you are eligible to participate in the voluntary retirement savings plans.  APS offers both the traditional retirement plan option (before-tax contributions) and the Roth retirement plan option (after-tax contributions.)  

You may enroll in the 403(b) or 457 plans at any time during the year, and your contributions will start with the first paycheck of the month following the date APS receives notification of your enrollment.  (The plan administrators will notify the Employee Benefits Department once you set up your payroll contributions.)  Winter break and summer payroll schedules and deadlines can impact your contribution start date.  

Contributions for either the 403(b) or 457 plans are taken out of two paychecks per month.  There are no contributions deducted from the third paycheck of any month.
