401(k) Plan

  • Your contribution will be automatically invested in a target retirement fund invested according to your current age and projected retirement date.
  • If you were hired or rehired on or after January 1, 2019, your contributions to the plan will increase automatically every year by 1% of your pay until your contributions reach 10% of your pay. The increase will happen on the anniversary of the date you were automatically enrolled in the plan.
  • You should log on to the Fidelity website about a week after your hire date to actively make a deferral election, check your investments, and name a beneficiary. Fidelity recommends that you save 15% of your income every year (including the money you get from your employer) to have enough saved at retirement.
  • You can make changes to your deferral elections at any time on the Fidelity website or by calling 800-354-3419.
