Deferred Compensation Notice

Effective January 10, 2009, Monterey County's Deferred Compensation Plan is now automated & all transactions are handled online.

To access your account online, you will need to call 1-800-701-8255 (Great West Customer Service) and request a temporary PIN. NOTE: This phone is answered by a computer. When it asnwers, please press "0" and continue to press "0" until you are speaking to a live person. Tell the operator you are with the County of Monterey and need a temporary PIN. They will put you on hold for a couple of minutes and return to give you the PIN.

Once you have the temporary PIN, please go to and login. NOTE: The first time you login, your username will be your Social Security number.

Once you are logged in, on the left-hand side of the screen you will see a tab labeled "Change Account". Click here. From this page, you can change the amount you contribute, your personal information, your beneficiaries, how your money is invested, etc.
