Summit Savings


Mission: 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 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.

The City and County of Denver 457b Deferred Compensation Plan is now Summit Savings

Starting in the autumn of 2019, the City & County of Denver’s deferred compensation plan will be known as Summit Savings.

This rename is intended to boost enrollment and refresh the plan’s brand by associating this retirement option with the concept of reaching a mountain summit. A summit is an endeavor that requires planning, consideration and always keeping the goal in sight.
