Retirement Plans


Must be at least 21 years of age and have worked a minimum of 1,000 hours for two consecutive years. CSHL contributes the equivalent of 9.3% of your annual salary up to the social security taxable wage base and 15% of your annual salary above that base. Post Doctoral Fellows receive a 1% contribution.

You may contribute a portion of your gross salary up to a maximum of the lesser of 100% of your annual salary, or $18,500 before state and federal taxes are withheld, thereby reducing your taxable income. Participants whose 50th birthday falls in the 2018 calendar year may contribute an additional $6,000. Must have a valid social security number in order to participate in the CSHL 403(b) Plan.
