: Helping Denver employees save for retirement, one check at a time.

Vision: Retirement readiness for all.

Summit Savings is a separate, personal, retirement savings (457b) program offered by the City and County of Denver. The plan is designed to supplement the city’s pension plan managed by the Denver Employees Retirement Plan and Social Security, providing additional financial and retirement planning options. Summit Savings is a public-sector equivalent to the private sector’s 401k plans. You may choose to have your payroll deductions either made pre-tax and/or after-tax (Roth). Your Summit Savings investments can be customized as your needs require, and you can work with an investment advisor to tailor your investment options. The city does not match deferred compensation contributions.
