Employer Retirement Plan Consulting Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Roth 401(k) Plan?

A Roth 401(k) is an increasingly popular option within a 401(k) plan that represents a combination of features of the Roth IRA and a traditional 401(k) plan. In a traditional 401(k), you contribute income pre-tax, and then pay taxes on the funds when you withdraw them during retirement.

By offering a Roth 401(k) option, employees can elect to pay the taxes upfront allowing them to make withdrawals tax-free during their retirement.

Under the Roth 401(k), employees may contribute funds on a post-tax elective deferral basis, in addition to, or instead of, pre-tax elective deferrals under their traditional 401(k) plans.
