Retirement Plan Design Frequently Asked Questions
A 401(k) is a feature of a qualified profit sharing plan that allows employees to contribute a portion of their wages to individual accounts. A Traditional 401k Plan is sponsored by an employer and it lets workers save and invest a portion of their paycheck before taxes are taken out up to IRS prescribed limits. These taxes are not paid until the money is withdrawn from the account at retirement or other distributable events.
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.
