    I hope they don’t take our money from the Deffered Comp to pay for the debt? What do you think Mr. Thomann? If Nyc ever consider filing for bankruptcy, is there a possibility that they may take the money from our accounts? Is there any loophole in the law that would allow the City or State to do that? I hope not! Please, would you please respond? What are your thoughts sir? Thank you as always! You are providing very valuable information to us. I really appreciate it.

      You’re welcome. NYC cannot use NYC Deferred Comp participants money to pay for debt. The Small Business Jobs Protection Act of 1996 added Code Sec. 457(g) which requires the employer to maintain participant funds in a trust, custodial account, or annuity contract. NYC Deferred Comp accounts are in custodial accounts.

    Look at the lower right hand corner of the debt clock! Look at the price of gold per ounce they believe it should be ($6,983)! How do they arrive at that number?Gold closed today at $1,496 per ounce.
