We encourage you to take an active role in the Oakland County Deferred Compensation Plan and choose investment options that best suits your goals, time horizon, and risk tolerance. If you do not select specific investment options in the Plan, your contributions will be invested in the Fidelity Freedom Fund with the target retirement date closest to the year you might retire, based on your current age and assuming a retirement age of 65, at the direction of the Plan Sponsor.
Please see the chart located in the Investment Options section for more information regarding the Fidelity Freedom Funds®.
If no date of birth or an invalid date of birth is on file at Fidelity your contributions may be invested in the Fidelity Freedom income Fund. For more information about the Fidelity Freedom Fund options, log into www.fidelity.com/atwork/.

Through automatic payroll deduction, you can contribute a minimum of $10 on a pre-tax basis, up to the IRS dollar limits.
What are the IRS contribution limits?
If you are under age 50 the IRS contribution limit is $16,500 for 2010. If you will be at least age 50 during the year, your plan may allow you to defer an additional $5,500 as catch-up contributions.
Special Catch-up Provision If you haven't always contributed up to the IRS annual limit, you may be able to make additional "special catch-up" contributions to your Retirement Savings Plan. This is a big opportunity for some employees. In 2010, the maximum allowable special catch-up contribution limit is $33,000-twice the regular limit of $16,500. This contribution may be used in one or more of the three consecutive years prior to the year in which you attain normal retirement age under the plan. This option gives you an opportunity to catch up on contributions you could have made in previous years. To initiate a catch-up contribution, contact the Oakland County Human Resources, Retirement Unit at 1-248-858-2191. You may use only one of the catch-up provisions (age 50 or regular) in a given year.
