Welcome to the Transamerica Website for the Ascension Health Retirement Savings Program

This site provides access to your Ascension Health Retirement Savings Program accounts and to retirement planning tools and resources from Transamerica Retirement Solutions, the recordkeeper for the program.

The program consists of the following plans:

  • A 403(b) plan, offered in not-for-profit health ministries, and a 401(k) plan, offered in for-profit locations, which provide for your before-tax contributions.
  • The Employer Contribution Account, which provides for employer contributions that your health ministry may provide.

Contribution Limits
You can save as little as 1% or $1 or as much as the annual contribution limits set by the IRS:

  • You may contribute up to $18,000 in 2016.
  • If you are or will be age 50 by December 31, 2016, a catch-up provision limit allows you to contribute an additional $6,000 in 2016.

Strive for 10 Percent

Maximizing Your Match? Strive for 10%—the amount most financial advisors recommend people save for retirement. And if you contribute this amount to your 403(b)/401(k) account, you'll receive the full employer match.

To learn more about the employer match, check with your local onsite Retirement Planning Consultant or call 877.346.7284 (Option 2) to speak with a Participant Counselor. Don't leave money on the table!

Matching contributions are subject to plan vesting requirements. Descriptions of plan features and benefits are subject to the plan document, which will govern in case of any inconsistencies.
