Suffolk Public Schools has contracted with “The OMNI Group” to administer our 403(b) Retirement Plan in compliance with new IRS guidelines. Under our agreement, it is OMNI’s responsibility to ensure that the district, its employee participants, and each of our providers adhere to all of the many compliance regulations of the IRS. As part of the process of assuring compliance with IRS regulations, OMNI has standardized our tax sheltered annuity forms. Interested employees must complete and sign the new OMNI Salary Reduction Agreement (SRA) and submit it directly to OMNI. IRS regulations will not permit OMNI to process your payroll deduction without a completed form.
