Get the 411 on a 401(k)
Take control of your retirement planning by taking advantage of any 401(k) options your employer offers. A 401(k) can be one of your best tools for creating a secure retirement, and provide specific tax advantages that your financial advisor can explain in full detail. All contributions and earnings to your 401(k) are tax-deferred, meaning you pay taxes on contributions and earnings when the money is withdrawn. Also, many employers provide matching contributions to your 401(k) account, which means you get free money you can't pass up. See the impact a 401(k) can have on your finances.
