Deferred Comp

The New York City Deferred Compensation Plan (DCP) allows eligible New York City employees a way to save for retirement through convenient payroll deductions. DCP is comprised of two programs: a 457 Plan and a 401(k) Plan, both of which offer pre-tax and Roth (after-tax) options.

The Deferred Compensation Plan

For employees enrolled in a City pension plan, and for non-pension member employees who are contributing less than 7.5% to either the 457 Plan or the 401(k), DCP is a supplemental savings plan to their pension and Social Security.
