The Massachusetts Deferred Compensation SMART Plan is a voluntary retirement savings program.

Retiring employees may defer accumulated sick pay, vacation pay and back pay into their SMART Plan account.

Employees separating from service may defer accumulated vacation and/or back pay.

Applicable amounts may be deferred for any calendar month only if:

  • The amount would have been available for use or would have been paid to the employee if employment had not terminated.
  • The amount is paid within 2 1/2 months following separation from service, and
  • An agreement providing for the deferral is entered into before the beginning of the month in which the amounts would otherwise be paid or made available.
