401(k) matching increase

I got an email from HR this week that my company will be increasing their matching from 3.0% to 3.5%, up to 5% of my gross income.

It amounts to about $250 and is given in the form of company stock (as is the rest of the match) which I rebalance a few times a year into regular mutual funds. Yippee?

But hey. Free $250. Better than a kick in the pants.


  1. I would love a 401K match, unfortunately my company doesn't offer that. CB's employer is pretty great though - he gets 10% of his salary deposited into his retirement account every month, regardless of whether he contributes or not.
