    They match up to 6% if you put the maximum contribution. They also have a good company managing the benefits. Used to be Charles Schwab but now it's Vanguard

    Employer matched half of up to 6% of your contribution. Choice of pre- and post-tax contributions.

    Starting Jan. 1, 2018, 401k does not match after $18,000. Meaning, if you are doing the 50+ catch up, you tap out at $18,000. Vanguard loaded with fees that company installed.

    Company matches half up to 6% of salary, which is just fair for the industry. Pension large makes up that shortfall. Switched from Schwab to Vanguard a few years ago and returns have significantly improved.

    50% match up to 6% is a very nice set aside.

    Overall good 401k plan. You have a choice of low risk and high risk options.
