What is a 401(a)?


A 401(a) is a workplace retirement plan that is sponsored by an employer. It is a savings plan vehicle that is offered by government agencies, non-profit organizations, and educational institutions.


What makes a 401(a) unique? 


Unlike other employer-sponsored retirement plans, you cannot open a 401(a) on your own. It is only offered by the employer to specific employees in the organization as an incentive or added benefit.


Who can make contributions to a 401(a)?


Contributions to a 401(a) may be made by the employer, the participating employee, or both. The employer will set the contribution model and amount.
