Save For Your Future
Our 401(k) Retirement Savings Plan through Fidelity helps you save money for retirement while providing tax benefits. You get the choice of a Pre-Tax 401(k) or a Roth 401(k) – or both, if that works for you. Either one will help you keep more of those dollars in your pocket so you can enjoy a nice, big nest egg when you’re ready to retire.
What’s a 401(k), you ask? Here’s some basic information you need to know before you get started. The 401(k) is a company-sponsored retirement savings plan that allows you to make payroll contributions directly into your savings account.
There are two types of 401(k) contributions: Pre-Tax and Roth. There are different advantages to both, and some people even like to have both throughout their careers.
Here are the main differences:
|Pre-Tax 401(k)||Roth 401(k)|
|Contributions are deducted from your paycheck before taxes are withheld, reducing your taxable income.||Contributions are deducted from your paycheck after taxes are withheld.|
|You pay income tax on your withdrawals, including any capital gains.||Withdrawals are tax-free if you own the account for at least five years and have reached age 59 ½.|
|You can contribute up to 50% of your eligible compensation, up to the IRS limit each year. For 2018, this limit is $18,500, or $24,500 if you’re 50+.|
Good news! Employees and interns are eligible to participate immediately upon your date of hire. Employees are auto-enrolled at a 6% contribution rate after 30 days of employment, but interns are not auto-enrolled. You can change this at any time, so don’t worry if your financial situation changes throughout the year.
