What is Safe Harbor?
Safe Harbor is a type of employer contribution that can be added to a 401(k) plan in order to help the plan pass compliance testing.
How Safe Harbor Works
Safe Harbor is a type of employer contribution that is added to a 401(k) plan in order to help the plan pass compliance testing. There are three types of contributions an employer can choose from: non-elective, basic, enhanced.
How Fisher Can Help
Fisher is one of America's top advisory firms with deep experience helping business owners navigate the ins and outs of evaluating and setting up a Safe Harbor strategy tailored to meet their specific objectives.
There are 3 Options for Safe Harbor Contributions
Non-Elective Safe Harbor
Eligible employees get an annual employer contribution of 3% of their salary. This amount is immediately fully vested and the employee gets it whether or not they contribute to the plan.
Basic Safe Harbor Match
The employer matches 100% of the first 3% of each employee's contribution and 50% of the next 2%. Employees are required to contribute to their 401(k) in order to get the match.
Enhanced Safe Harbor Match
The employer matches 100% of the first 4% of each employee's contribution. Like a Basic Safe Harbor Match, employees are required to defer money to their 401(k) in order to qualify for the match.
