FAQs on MyUSA’s 401k:

Does MyUSA match my contribution? Yes, MyUSA matches the first 3% of your salary that you contribute to your 401k dollar for dollar (100%). MyUSA then matches 50% of the next 2% of your salary. So, if you contribute 5% or more of your Salary, the company match equates to a total of 4% of your salary. Here is an example:

Employee Betty Rubble makes $16/hr. and works 40 hours per week. This equates to 80 hours worked and a bi-weekly salary of $1,280 ($16 x 80 hrs.). Betty Rubble contributes 5% of her salary to her 401k equaling $64 per pay period. Betty’s employer, ABC Company, matches her contribution 100% of the first 3% of her pay and then 50% for the next 2% of her pay. Her employer’s contribution totals $51.20 per pay period. In total, Betty is saving $115.20 every paycheck for her retirement. This totals out to $2,995.20 per year. See the breakdown in the chart below.

What if I terminate employment with MyUSA, do I get to take my 401k match with me? This is called vesting and yes, you do, according to the vesting schedule. You are fully vested after five years of employment.

Where can I find this information? In the Safe Harbor notice which is provided to employees upon hire and annually.  

What is vesting? Vesting refers to your “ownership” of a benefit from the Plan. The money that you contribute and the money that your 401k earns are always 100% vested (i.e. you have full ownership of those funds). Any rollover or transfer contributions you make are also 100% vested.
