401(k)

NAF is proud to offer 401(k) Auto Enrollment, which means you automatically save for
retirement with each paycheck, unless you opt out with written notification.

Employer matching schedule is 1% to your 1%, 2% to your 2%, 2.5% to your 3% and 3% to your 4%.

Employer matching schedule
YOUR CONTRIBUTION EMPLOYER MATCH
1% 1%
2% 2%
3% 2.5%
4% 3%

Contributing 4% of your salary to your 401 (k) essentially gets you a 3% raise – that you get to spend in your retirement.

As of August 2018, the default 401 (k) fund has changed from the Fidelity Balance K Fund to the T. Rowe Price Target Date Funds for all new hires/rehires. Employees are placed in the appropriate Target Date Fund based on their age at enrollment. Current employees that did not make an affirmative election upon hire and were placed in the Fidelity Balance K Fund also had their bi-weekly payroll contributions automatically switched to an age-appropriate Target Date Fund, without affecting investment balances in the Fidelity Balance K Fund. 

Employees may change their investment elections by visiting www.401k.com or by calling
Fidelity at 1-800-835-5093.
