401(k) Retirement Plans

An employer-sponsored retirement plan that allows employees to add pre-taxed income to a retirement savings account. The funds will be taxed, however, once the employee makes a withdrawal from the account. Oftentimes, employers will also make contributions to the employee’s 401(k). 401(k)s are portable, so when an employee moves jobs their retirement account will go with them.
