Benefits and Your Taxes

The District of Columbia Teachers’ Retirement Plan and the District of Columbia Police Officers and Firefighters’ Retirement Plan are considered 401(a) defined benefit governmental retirement plans under Section 414(d) of the Internal Revenue Code. For purposes of  plan distributions, annuities, rollovers, refunds, and other financial transactions, your Social Security number serves as the Plan’s account number since neither of the Plans assigns individual account numbers.

When you receive an annuity from the Plan, a portion of the distribution you receive may be subject to federal income tax. For more information, please review the appropriate section for your Plan type:
