    Meet the maximum value the government allowance.

    As mentioned, flat 50% match which means you can get 9250 matched in 2018 if you max your 401k. Perhaps what is better is the unique ability to do post-tax, non-Roth contributions up to ~26k in 2018 - this is a "mega backdoor Roth" move, allowing up to 26k additional $$ into Roth accounts, either the Roth 401k sub-bucket or your own Roth IRA. Adding the match, your contributions, and the mega backdoor Roth move this is up to 54k in tax advantaged investing per year!

    We get OVER $9k/year in match AND the investment fees are ridiculously low. I have one investment that is only 0.02% in investment management fees!
