Employee Appreciation Day & Your 401(k)
Today, marks National Employee Appreciation Day—an opportunity for managers and bosses to take a moment, appreciate their employees and thank them for their hard work. But this likely isn’t the only time you could enjoy a perk from your company.
Many employers offer 401(k) programs as part of their benefits package, allowing you to begin setting aside a portion of your income for those golden years. The best part? Many employers even offer a matching program, which means they will match a certain percentage of your contributions. Not participating in this program is like leaving money on the table. It’s just one little way your employer can show you they care each and every day.
Maxed out your 401(k)? Consider adding a Fixed Indexed Annuity to your portfolio—there’s no cap on how much you can contribute and adding an FIA can help bring much-needed balance to your mix of retirement savings products.
