State of Michigan 401(k) and 457 Plans

What's New

  • Updates to Loan Rules Announced for Participants Hired before December 1, 2010!
    Effective January 1, 2015, the loan rules will be amended to permit up to two outstanding loans total from the 401(k) and 457 plans at any one time. Effective January 1, 2016, the number of loans permitted at a time will be reduced to one. Accordingly, if you have two or more loans outstanding (which includes any loan that has been defaulted) as of January 1, 2015, you will not be able to take a new loan until your total number of outstanding loans is reduced to one or less. As of January 1, 2016, if you have an outstanding loan (which includes any loan that has been defaulted), you will not be able to take a new loan until all loans are repaid in full. When considering a loan, keep in mind that loans will impact your retirement savings. Please take a moment to review Taking a loan from your 401(k) or 457 Plan: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW!
