    Very-low cost Vanguard funds with the maximum IRS allowed match. Costs go up rapidly if you go "off book".

    They match at 100% if you put in less than 3k (50% immediately vested, the rest at the end of the year). If you put in more than 3k they match at 50% for a max of $8750 if you put in the max of $17500. At the 50% rate, their contributions are immediately vested.
