When Can an Employee in a 457(b) Plan Use A Three-Year Catch-Up Election?
We are a private university who sponsors, among other plans, a 457(b) plan for our select management and highly compensated employees. The plan contains the three-year catch-up election for employees who are within three years of the normal retirement age of the plan (which in our case is 65). Our question is, can the employee actually use the election in the year in which he/she turns age 65 if he/she qualifies? We have an employee who turns age 65 in 2022 requesting that she use the election, but we think it might be too late for her to use the election, as she would have had to use it in the years that she turned ages 62, 63, and/or 64 if eligible. Are we correct?
