OBRA - Massachusetts Deferred Compensation SMART Plan

Mike Richardson

(877) 457-1900

One Winter Street, 8th Floor
Boston, MA 02108

Monday-Friday, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET

As a part-time, seasonal or temporary employee of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts or a Massachusetts local government employer, you are required to participate in the SMART Plan. The SMART Plan is an alternative to Social Security as permitted by the federal Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act of 1990 (OBRA). OBRA, passed by the U.S. Congress, requires that beginning July 1, 1991, employees not eligible to participate in their employer's retirement program be placed in Social Security or another program meeting federal requirements. The SMART Plan meets those federal requirements.
