Create a bright financial future

Northeastern helps faculty and staff plan for a fulfilling, financially secure future by offering a Retirement Plan with the opportunity to contribute pre-tax through a traditional 403(b), after-tax through a Roth 403(b), or a combination of both.

After one year of service,* employees 21 years of age and older that contribute 5 percent of their pay receive an additional 10% contribution from Northeastern to their plan account, with immediate vesting.

*You will be credited with one year of service if you complete 1000 hours during the 12 months beginning on your hire date or any calendar year after.

Exceptional offerings, even after retirement

Northeastern benefits don’t end after retirement. We ensure eligible university employees retire well with continued offerings, including free tickets to campus events and tuition scholarships for two courses every academic term, full tuition for dependent children who qualify for admission, parking on campus, and more.
