Save for Retirement

Set aside money for your future


Your retirement is likely to be the largest expense you incur in your lifetime, yet for many of us, this is often the least funded. It's never too early or too late to begin saving!

Children's Mercy’s partners with TIAA to offer:

  • A 403(b) Tax Deferred Annuity Plan. As a new employee, you are automatically enrolled at a 3-percent salary deferral. However, you have the option to opt out within your first 90 days of employment. After two years of employment, Children’s Mercy will match your contribution at 50 percent, up to maximum match of 3 percent. 

  • A group Retirement Plan. You are automatically enrolled in the Children's Mercy Group Retirement Plan the month following your second anniversary if you meet the eligibility requirements. Once you're enrolled, you're 100-percent vested.

You’ll learn more about Children’s Mercy’s retirement plans during Children’s Mercy Orientation.
