Deferred compensation plan

Want to turbocharge your retirement-savings strategy? The deferred compensation plan provides an additional way to stash away money for your future, beyond the limits of the 401(k) plan.

Key features

Set aside pretax earnings above 401(k) limits, up to 100% of salary and Autodesk Incentive Plan (AIP) payments.

Lower your adjusted gross income in the year you contribute.

Build tax-deferred savings for retirement or other financial goals.


Employees on US payroll who are at or above job level P6, M5, or E1 are eligible to participate and will be notified by email.

Annual enrollment

Enrollment instructions will be distributed to eligible employees at the beginning of each annual enrollment period, which happens around November/December. Elections do not carry over from one year to the next, so you must make an election each year you want to participate. Enrollment is irrevocable, so please review the program materials carefully.
