The Samsung 401(k) plan allows you to contribute to your 401(k) pre-tax and/or after tax “Roth 401(k)”. Samsung currently matches 75% of the 1st 6% of your contributions each pay period.

You have the option to change or stop this contribution rate at any time. If you are at least age 50 by the end of the calendar year, you have an opportunity for additional savings, called “catch-up contributions”. As a participant in the Samsung 401(k) program, you choose how to invest your account from a wide range of investment options. You can access your account and make changes on a daily basis using the plan’s interactive website. If you need to access your savings before retirement, loans are available.


We believe that living by strong values is the key to good business. That’s why these core values, along with a rigorous code of conduct, are at the heart of every decision we make.
