Deferred Compensation

The ACTTC's Deferred Compensation unit, in collaboration with Nationwide Retirement Services, administers the County's pre-tax savings programs on behalf of County employees. These programs are intended to encourage employees to save additional funds for retirement. Employees may have two or three different accounts and employees may access their accounts in person at our office or on line by visiting

Please note that the deferred compensation program is not the same as the Sonoma County Employees’ Retirement Association (SCERA)'s pension plan. For information on SCERA and pensions, visit or call (707) 565-8100.

To schedule phone or in-person services, please contact your deferred compensation representative at (707) 565-3221 or by email
