I haven't seen a definitive answer. You could call them. The term is "true-up matching contributions". I'm inclined to think that they won't do it when they start matching per paycheck, because if you're not contributing anything at the end of the year, what is there to match? But I could be wrong, so please report back if you find out.
Why call when you can ask here and have others do your work for you?
right, but that 5.2k cant get hit until our final paycheck. they have no way of knowing what our salary will be in advance. nevermind, its not worth trying to explain
Anyway, if the question is what happens if you earn more then what they project, I would say they would do a end of the year contribution. Since that wasn't in the information provided, you have to call. You could also ask your manager.
Best thing to do is simply make sure you contribute 4% and see what happens at the end of next year. If it's wrong, call and fix it.
The example they gave was overly simplified and simply said a persons contribution is $$$ so divide by 26 and you get your amount. They may just take 4% of each pay check and give that to you as long as you've contributed enough
Just making sure the max match they contribute is 4%
Oh, there wasn't anything mentioned about any extra contribution. I assume they are done with that.
