Section 401(k) retirement plans offer tremendous benefits for employees, but many do not understand these benefits or know how to take full advantage of them. This session aims to remove the mystery by shining a light on key points.

In this session, we will discuss: (1) what employees should consider when deciding whether and how to participate in an employer’s 401(k) plan; (2) the different types of contributions provided under 401(k) plans and how employees can make the most of them; and (3) some thoughts on how employees should use a 401(k) plan’s investment options.

You’ll leave with ideas about how to:

·        Examine current levels of employee participation in your 401(k) plan, and consider whether there are appropriate ways to help employees make better use of the plan.

·        Consider whether employees understand the different contribution types offered under your plan, including Roth and after-tax contributions (if applicable).

·        Look at how your 401(k) plan’s assets are currently invested, and consider whether there is cause for concern (e.g., a large percentage of assets invested in a money market fund).
