Your Contributions

You may contribute between 1% and 60% of your eligible pay to your plan account, up to annual IRS limits. In 2019, the IRS limits allow you to contribute up to:

  • $19,000 if you are under age 50
  • $25,000 if you’re age 50 or older this year (which includes an additional $6,000 in catch-up contributions)

These limits include your pre-tax contributions, Roth post-tax contributions, or a combination of both. What’s the difference between pre-tax and Roth post-tax contributions?

It’s not too late to make up for lost time. If you’ll be 50 or older this year, take advantage of the opportunity to contribute up to an additional $6,000 in 2019.

Pre-tax vs. Roth post-tax contributions

The WinnCompanies 401(k) plan gives you the flexibility to save for retirement in a variety of ways. You can make pre-tax contributions, Roth post-tax contributions, or a combination of both.

Pre-Tax Contributions Roth Post-Tax Contributions
  • The money goes into your plan account before taxes are deducted, so you keep more of your take-home pay.
  • Because you don’t pay taxes at the time you contribute, you’ll owe taxes on both your contributions and any investment earnings when you withdraw your money in retirement (when you may be in a lower income tax bracket).
  • The money goes into your plan account after taxes are withheld.
  • In exchange for paying taxes now, both your contributions AND any earnings can be withdrawn tax-free in retirement, provided you meet two requirements for tax-free withdrawal of earnings:
    • At least five years have elapsed since your first Roth contribution.
    • You are at least age 59½ or the withdrawal follows death or total disability.
Keep in mind that company contributions are made on a pre-tax basis, no matter which contribution type(s) you select.

Company Matching Contributions

To support your retirement saving efforts, WinnCompanies matches 50% of your contributions to the plan when you contribute up to 6% of your eligible earnings, for a company contribution amount that equals up to 3% of your eligible earnings each paycheck.

Here’s how the company match works:

Are you making your money work as hard as you do? Try to contribute at least 6% to take full advantage of the match — otherwise, you’re saying “no thanks” to free money.

Vesting

Vesting is another way of saying “how much of the money is yours to keep if you leave the company.” You are always 100% vested in your own contributions and company matching contributions, including any investment gains and losses on the money.

iconHave you named a beneficiary?

It's important to designate a beneficiary to receive the value of your 401(k) account in the event you die before beginning to receive your benefit. As personal circumstances change, be sure to keep that information up-to-date. Visit the Fidelity NetBenefits website to add or change a beneficiary.

Before investing, carefully consider the funds’ or investment options’ objectives, risks, charges, and expenses. Call 1-800-835-5097 for a prospectus and, if available, a summary prospectus, or an offering circular containing this and other information. Please read them carefully. Investing involves risk, including the risk of loss.
