What is employer matching?

When your employer chooses to match contributions, funds are added to your 401(k) account in an amount based on the deferrals you make. 

An example, would be your employer offering a 100% match on up to 3% of your salary. Assuming your salary is $100,000 and you contribute 3% each pay period, during the course of a year you’ll be personally contributing $3,000 and your employer will contribute an additional $3,000 into your 401(k). 

You can see if your employer offers an employer match within your Guideline account Plan Details page.
