A workplace retirement plan that allows you to contribute through payroll deduction is a convenient and powerful way to save. Take advantage of the many benefits to saving in your plan:
- It’s easy and consistent with automatic savings through payroll deductions.
- It lowers your taxable income because you can save pre-tax.
- Your savings, plus the interest you earn, grow tax deferred. Time is on your side because you’re earning interest on your interest.
- Your employer may offer a company match, which means they contribute money to your retirement account based on your own contribution, up to a certain percent. Make sure to take advantage of the match if it’s available.
