Types of 401(k) Plans

Traditional 401(k) Plans offer the greatest flexibility and are often offered as a benefit from employers. The contributions are pre-tax and are scheduled as payroll deductions. Employers have the option to make matching contributions to the employees account.

Safe Harbor 401(k) Plans are similar to a traditional 401(k) plans. The key difference is how employer contributions that are fully vested are handled.

SIMPLE 401(k) Plans are designed for small businesses with 100 or fewer employees. The main difference with these types of accounts is the required fully vested employer contributions. Plus, employees may not receive any 401(k) contributions or benefit accruals under any other plans of the employer.
