Designing and Developing A 401K Plan

The reasons for launching a pension scheme to help employees with their retirement planning aspirations are clear for all bosses to see. It shows your staff members that you care, satisfies legal obligations, and gives you the self-satisfaction of being a responsible boss. Therefore, designing and developing your plan should be one of the top items on your agenda.

As with many major business decisions, knowing where to start is often the hardest challenge of all. With the help of SW Pension on your side, however, it becomes a whole lot easier. Here’s everything you need to know in order to get your company’s pension plans in good health.

The 401K Pension Plan

There are many ways to support your employees through pension related endeavors. However, the 401k pension plan is the best starting point by far. It gives employees a chance to build a retirement fund without ever noticing the impact on their current earnings. This is because you, the employer, will hold back some of their funds and place them into a tax-deferred savings account on their behalf.

Employees can save up to $18,500 annually through this retirement savings account. Whether individual staff members are in a position to save that sum of money or not, any contributions will serve them well in later life. Knowing that their financial future is in safe hands will inevitably boost morale (and productivity) too. If that doesn’t inspire you to get involved, nothing will.
