Benefits of a 401(k)
The Benefits of a 401(k)
- The Vista 401(k) Plan is your school district’s sponsored retirement saving plan that offers significant tax benefits.
- Perhaps the most important feature of the 401(k) plan is the ability to make pre-tax plan contributions.
- You contribute to the plan via payroll deduction, which makes it easier for you to save for retirement.
- The Vista 401(k) is a simple, low-cost and convenient way to save for retirement.
|Without 401(k)||With 401(k)|
|Take Home Pay||$930||$972|
|Before-Tax Contribution||- $0||- $150|
|Federal Income Tax||- $420||- $378|
|After-Tax Retirement Plan||- $150||- $0|
The amount of the reduced taxes will vary with the amount you contribute and your tax bracket.
As an example, if 28 percent of your income is withheld and you invest $150 into your 401(k), the net difference in your actual take-home pay may be less than $150.
This comparison assumes an employee contributes $150 per month, and is in a 28% tax bracket.
