Great plan. They match plus give free 2.5 % after first year. So invest 4 % and they give additional 6.5 % for free.

Good base contribution (3%?), very good matching. One of the most generous retirement benefits around.

Vanguard, but APL keeps messing with the fund options, they recently swapped a fund for a small reduction in fees with one that makes 2% less on a 5-10 year average rate of return. I don't think that's an improvement. It was the best performing fund of all the available options. Sigh. They have a good matching plan and minimum employer contribution after one year of service.
