Mutual funds under a 401(a) trust agreement are intended as long-term investments designed for retirement purposes. Mutual fund values fluctuate with market conditions, and when surrendered, the principal may be worth more or less than the original amount invested. The Plan's Stable Value Option invests in the Voya Stable Value Fund, which is a collective investment trust maintained by Wilmington Trust Company. The Plan's Stable Value Option is backed by a group annuity contract issued by Voya Retirement Insurance and Annuity Company ("VRIAC"), which guarantees that the return on the Plan's Stable Value Option will not be less than 0%. The net crediting rate is declared quarterly. The initial net crediting rate will be determined based on market conditions within 30 days of the contract funding date. Guarantees are based on the claims paying ability of Voya Retirement Insurance and Annuity Company. The Plan's Stable Value Option, the Voya Stable Value Fund and the VRIAC group annuity contract are not registered investment companies and are not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Although it is possible to have guaranteed income for life with a fixed/variable annuity, there is no assurance that this income will keep up with inflation. Early withdrawals taken prior to age 59 ½ are subject to an IRS 10% premature distribution penalty tax unless an exception applies. Money distributed will be taxed as ordinary income in the year the money is distributed. An annuity does not provide any additional tax benefit, as tax deferral is provided by the Plan. Annuities may be subject to additional fees and expenses, to which other tax-deferred funding vehicles may not be subject. However, an annuity does offer other features and benefits, such as lifetime income payments and death benefits, which may be valuable to you.

Neither Voya nor its affiliated companies or representatives provide tax or legal advice. Please consult a tax adviser or attorney before making a tax-related investment/insurance decision.

TennORP Plan Overview Article

Below are the important features about your plan. This website is intended to be a summary of the plan provisions.  In the event that a conflict exists between the information contained within this website and the plan document, the plan document provisions prevail. For more information, please contact your local representative.

The Tennessee Optional Retirement Program (ORP) is a defined contribution retirement plan offered to faculty and exempt employees of Tennessee's public colleges and universities as an alternative to the Tennessee Consolidated Retirement System (TCRS) defined benefit pension plan. Once an eligible employee elects to participate in ORP, that decision is irrevocable with one exception. On a participant’s 5th anniversary, he or she will receive a letter from the State asking if they wish to leave the ORP and buy into TCRS. After this period, the decision is irrevocable.

ORP contribution rates for new employees who begin employment on or after July 1, 2014:

  • Employer contribution will be 9% of compensation
  • Mandatory employee contribution will be 5% of compensation.

A 2% Employee auto-enroll contribution will also be made on behalf of all participants to the 401(k) plan for which a participant may change their contribution amount at any time.

Under the Plan, the maximum annual contribution amount is set by Internal Revenue Service (IRS) guidelines on a yearly basis. You may view the current limits here.
