1) Select a vendor from the TSA approved vendor list

2) Enroll with the vendor, setting up an account.

Please note PASSHE's deferral of an employee's salary to the TSA program is not an endorsement of the investments offered by the vendor. It is the sole responsibility of the employee to determine whether the vendor and its investment choices are appropriate for the employee.

You must have an active account with the TSA prior to making payroll elections

The State System TSA 403(b) plan is completely voluntary.
