    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.

    Excellent plan administered by Vanguard, with access to the ultra low cost 'Trust Plus' versions of major index funds. Matching of 50% up to the $18K IRS limit, then access to After-tax-to-roth in-plan conversions up to $52K.

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