The takeaway

The 401(k) savings plan, administered through Fidelity, provides you with one of the easiest ways to save for your future using both pretax and after-tax dollars. You can take advantage of several investment options and access to guidance and financial planning services.

Highlights

  • Automatic enrollment upon hire for full-time employees age 21+.
  • 4% of your base pay automatically deducted as pretax savings and deposited into the 401(k) plan on your behalf, unless you decide otherwise.
  • Opt out, enroll, and change your contribution elections at any time.
  • Contribute up to $19,500 for 2021 (or $26,000 if you're age 50+) to the pretax or Roth options; if you max out these contributions, you can save even more with after-tax contributions.
  • Manage your contribution elections and investments through Fidelity’s website.
