The SACT-Regular Plan allows contributions
in whole percentages beginning at one percent of your base salary.
The maximum contribution allowable is the prevailing IRS maximum
for all 403(b) plans ($16,500 in 2010). Lump-sum contributions
of $50 or more are allowed in the third month of any calendar
quarter. Although your contributions to the regular plan are "after-tax
contributions", your accumulated earnings are deferred from
federal income tax until you withdraw your money.
