If you do not hold a teaching certificate and work 20 or more hours per week, Lindbergh Schools and you contribute into the Public Education Employee Retirement System of Missouri (PEERS) toward your retirement savings.
Additionally, if you hold a position with Lindbergh Schools as a contracted teacher, you do not contribute toward your Social Security Retirement.

CSD Retirement Trust - 403(b) and 457(b)
In addition to your PEERS/PSRS retirement, Lindbergh participates in the CSD Retirement Trust bringing you a top of the line 403(b) Salary Reduction plan and a 457(b) Deferred Compensation plan with VALIC as the current investment provider.
The investment line ups in these plans meet or exceed their comparative benchmarks and have some the lowest fees around – rivaling large corporate 401(k) plans. Both of these plans reduce your taxable income now while helping you save for retirement. So a $100 contribution will only reduce your net pay about $75.
In addition to these plans, there is also a 403(b) Roth available. With this plan, contributions go in as taxable. But the earnings growth and subsequent withdrawals at retirement are tax free.
Please contact Ken Klages, VALIC Financial Advisor for further information regarding these plans.
