You are eligible to participate in the ANL Employee 403(b) Mandatory Plan if you are employed by Argonne as a member of the managerial and administrative staff, research and development staff, a member of a collective bargaining agreement (Union) or a bi-weekly employee not covered by a collective bargaining agreement.
Not eligible to participate are Post Doctoral Appointees, Argonne Fellows, Visiting Scholars, Visiting Scientists, Senior Visiting Scientists, Faculty Research Participants, Pre-doctoral Appointees, and Resident Associates Education.
Eligible employees under age 30 may elect to participate in the basic component to receive Laboratory match on the first of the month following or coinciding with the completion of one year of service with Argonne. A year of service means a twelve-month period beginning on the employee's date of hire or an anniversary thereof during which the employee has at least 1,000 hours of service with Argonne. Employees not eligible for Laboratory 401(a) match can contribute on a supplemental basis (without match) to the 403(b) plan.
