Instructions on how to fund your 403(b)
Once you have opened a 403(b) and created an account at your MONEY, you still need to fund your account by filling out a Salary Reduction Agreement (SRA). An SRA authorizes your employer to withhold either the dollar amount or
percentage of pay you've elected from each paycheck and send your
contribution to Member Benefits. Depending on the district you work for, you will fund your account in one of three ways:
1. Online through the your MONEY portal
Available only to employees in the following districts:
Altoona, Green Bay, Howard Suamico, Hustisford, Ithaca, Ladysmith,
New London, Pecatonica, Raymond Jt. 1, Seboygan Falls, Three Lakes,
Turtle Lakes, Wautoma, Wittenberg Birnamwood
Please log in and fill out the online Salary Reduction Agreement through the your MONEY portal.

2. Request a Salary Reduction Agreement (SRA) from your school district
Obtain an SRA from your school district (HR, payroll office). Fill it out and submit it to your district's payroll department.
3. Request an SRA from your district's Third Party Administrator
If your school district uses a Third Party Administrator (TPA), contact your district's TPA for instructions on how to complete the paperwork necessary to start contributing to your 403(b).
Our Member Service staff is available to answer any questions you may have about your account. Give us a call at 1-800-279-4030.
