RETIREMENT & BENEFIT SERVICES DIVISION MEMORANDUM

November 1, 2000

TO THE HEADS OF ALL STATE AGENCIES

ATTENTION: Personnel and Payroll Officers
SUBJECT: State of Connecticut Deferred Compensation (457) Plan-Investor Education Seminar
  1. INTRODUCTION
The purpose of this memorandum is to announce that the Office of the State Comptroller will continue to provide state agencies with the opportunity to sponsor a Deferred Compensation (457) Plan (the "Plan") Investor Education Seminar presented by Buck Consultants. In an effort to increase enrollment, the seminars are intended for eligible non-participating and new employees and will emphasize the importance of retirement planning, explain how to use the Plan as a method of reaching retirement goals and provide a basic understanding of investing.
  1. SEMINAR SCHEDULING
A representative of Buck Consultants will be contacting your agency in the near future regarding the scheduling of seminars for your employees. However, you may contact Buck Consultants directly at (201) 902-2872 with questions related to seminar scheduling and the reservation process. General questions regarding the Plan may be directed to the Comptroller's Retirement & Benefit Services Division (the "Division"), Employee Benefits Unit at (860) 702-3543.
  1. CONCLUSION
It is the Division's objective to educate as many non-participating and new employees as possible, and to encourage participation in the Plan; therefore your assistance in making the Plan's seminar accessible to your agency's employees is essential to the success of this important benefit for our employees.

Very truly yours,

NANCY WYMAN, STATE COMPTROLLER
