457 Plan: Roth vs. Pre-tax Calculator

A 457 plan contribution can be an effective retirement tool. The Roth 457 plan allows you to contribute to your 457 account on an after-tax basis - and pay no taxes on qualifying distributions when the money is withdrawn. For some investors, this could prove to be a better option than contributing on a pre-tax basis, where deposits are subject to taxes when the money is withdrawn. Use this calculator to help determine the best option for your retirement.
