Introducing Roth Contributions
Partner contributions can be either Roth or traditional. NHC’s matching contribution are traditional (pre-tax). Having both types of funds allow tax planning opportunities to and through retirement. Consult your financial advisor when deciding which type of contribution to make.
The chart on the left illustrates potential growth in a 401(k) plan. Depending on if the contributions were Roth or traditional, different tax amounts were paid. If the partner contributions were pre-tax, taxes would be paid on the total balance: $119,377.84. If the partner contributions were Roth, taxes would be paid on the partner contributions only: $34,998.60.
Percentage & Dollar Contribution Elections Available
Selecting a percentage election allows contribution amounts to adjust as pay fluctuates. Selecting a flat dollar election keeps contribution amounts predictable.
NHC’s match is calculated based on a percentage of partner contributions: 50% of every dollar up to 2.5% of quarterly wages. A contribution rate of 2.5% or more will ensure the maximum match is received. As your pay increases, a flat dollar election might fall under the required contribution amount needed to receive the full match.
