2020 Tax-Sheltered Annuity and Wisconsin Deferred Compensation Contribution Limits

IRS recently announced the 2020 contribution limits for the UW Tax-Sheltered Annuity (TSA) 403(b) Program and the Wisconsin Deferred Compensation (WDC) 457 Program.

In 2020, employees may contribute a basic maximum of $19,500 to the TSA Program. Employees age 50 and over can contribute an additional $6,500 for a total of $26,000. These same limits apply to WDC. Employees can contribute the maximum to both programs for a total of $39,000 (under age 50) or $52,000 (age 50 or older).

If you have 15 years or more of service with the UW System and have contributed less than an average of $5,000 per year over your UW System employment, you may have an additional “catch-up” opportunity with the TSA Program. Contact Human Resources for more information.

Both pre-tax and Roth (after-tax) contributions count towards the annual limits. Note: Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) are a type of retirement account separate from the TSA and WDC Programs and have separate limits.

To increase (or decrease) your TSA deduction for 2020, login to the My UW Portal. Launch the Benefits Information tile. On the bottom of the screen, click on “Update TSA Deductions” to make your change. You can also submit a TSA Salary Reduction Agreement to your human resources office.

If you are enrolling for the first time, you can use the EZ Enrollment Form or set your account up online (or paper application) with the provider(s) of your choice and then fill out the Salary Reduction Agreement.

For questions on the TSA program, visit the TSA website or contact Human Resources at (920) 465-2390 or

To change your WDC contribution call the WDC office at (877) 457-9327 or access your account at the WDC website. The WDC website also has information about enrolling in the program. WDC changes must be made with Empower, the third-party WDC plan administrator.



Do you have a Health Care FSA or HSA balance?

The administrator of your Flexible Spending Account (FSA) and/or Health Savings Account (HSA) will change from TASC to ConnectYourCare (CYC) effective January 1, 2020.

Communications regarding this change began in August 2019. To review these communications, key dates and frequently asked questions, go to the FSA & HSA – 2020 Vendor Change webpage.

Health Care FSA

Carry over: If you have funds in your Health Care FSA on December 31, 2019, that are eligible to carry over into 2020, these funds WILL carry over to CYC. However, the funds will not be available for you to use until May 1, 2020. Make sure you plan accordingly. On/after May 1, 2020, you may use your CYC payment card to access your FSA carry over funds.

Your TASC FSA payment card will be inactivated on December 31, 2019. After December 31, 2019, you will need to submit a Reimbursement Claim Form to TASC to request reimbursement for expenses incurred in 2019. You have until March 31, 2020 to submit your 2019 expenses to TASC.

Health Savings Account

Your TASC HSA payment card will be inactivated on February 3, 2020 if you electronically consent to transfer your HSA balance from TASC to CYC. Funds will be transferred between February 4, 2020 and February 29, 2020. Make sure you plan accordingly. You can expect to access your HSA balance transferred from TASC to CYC by March 1, 2020.

You may still use your TASC HSA payment card through February 2, 2020 even if you have completed the electronic consent.

Your TASC HSA payment card will remain active if you do not electronically authorize the transfer of your account from TASC to CYC by December 31, 2019. However, if you transfer your funds after December 31, 2019 or leave your funds with TASC, you may incur monthly administrative fees and an account closure fee. To avoid these fees, complete the electronic consent to transfer your balance from TASC to CYC no later than December 31, 2019. Transfers that occur after December 31, 2019 must be initiated by the employee directly with TASC.

You’ve just eaten and you want nothing more than to lie back on your couch and put on your newest binge-watching obsession. But tonight, resist that urge! Instead of heading to the couch, head to the front door and step outside for a walk. It will help you feel refreshed, it will help you work off some of the food you just ate, and it will help you build muscle and bone strength, as well as reduce your risk for heart disease and diabetes. You just might like it enough to do it tomorrow night and the night after, too. After-dinner walks could become your new thing. That show will still be there when you get back.
