Summary Plan Description
401(k) Annual Election
To make a timely election, you must complete an Application For 401(k) Elective Contributions and return it to the Trust Office. You must also notify your employer on the first day of employment but not later than the tenth business day of employment. Timely notification allows your employer to make the necessary changes to the payroll process.
Once you make an election, that 401(k) election amount remains in place, year after year, unless you elect to increase or decrease it during the annual election period. The only change you can make during the calendar year is to reduce you 401(k) contribution to $0. You can then elect a new 401(k) contribution amount during the next annual election period.
If you move from one employer to another employer, please provide a copy of the application to your new employer on the first day of employment but not later than the tenth business day of employment. This is the only way your employer will know to make 401(k) deductions from your paycheck and how much to deduct.
