Human Resources

To assist employees in planning for retirement, the college has established a defined contribution retirement plan. After one year of service, the college contributes an amount equal to 8% of an employee’s base compensation to an account in the employee’s name. In addition there is also an opportunity for an employee to make additional contributions and to manage their own investments. Full details are found in the plan documents listed below.

A financial advisor will be available to meet with employees who are interested in:

  • Reviewing any questions pertaining to the Alma retirement plan and their retirement account.
  • Going through Millennium’s financial planning process offered to all employees.
  • Reviewing and updating a financial plan that has previously been created for you.
  • Retaining Millennium for professional fee-based asset management of their retirement plan account(s).
