    3. Optional participation in the City of Bellevue Section 457 Deferred Compensation Program (DCP), allowing tax-deferred savings and direction of investments into mutual fund investment options.

*The City of Bellevue does not participate in Social Security. As such, employees do not contribute to, nor do they earn Social Security credit while employed with the city. The mandatory state retirement plans provide the required Social Security replacement for employees. Any Social Security benefits earned at other places of employment may be reduced because they are subject to the Windfall Elimination Provision and the Government Pension Offset.
