401(k) Option refers to the Tier 2 Defined Contribution Plan. This is a retirement option for the Tier 2 Public Employees Contributory Retirement System and the Tier 2 Public Safety and Firefighter Contributory Retirement System.

With this option, your employer contributes a portion of your salary into a 401(k), which is a retirement savings plan. The money you get in retirement is based on employer contributions, investment performance, and how you withdraw your money. This calculator helps you estimate your benefit.
