I’m in 10 person private practice. We match up to 5%, although I think it may take 7 years to be fully vested.AndTheParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 6Joined: 12/21/2018
I work at Kaiser in Portland, Oregon. Salaried above median for my specialty.
The retirement plan is as follows:
401k: Kaiser contributes 11% of salary (up to Federal salary limit of 11% of $270k).
Cash balance plan: Employer contributes 10% of your salary (up to Federal salary limit of 10% $270k). This grows by a fixed 4% each year.
Supplemental Excess Retirement Plan: If your salary is over $270k, KPNW gives you a bonus of of 10 to 11% of the amount of salary over 270k each year. This is paid as a post-tax, year end bonus, and so is considerably less valuable since it’s taxed.
None of the above are dependent on employee contribution. So I get the same amount whether or not I contribute to my 401k etc.snowcanyonParticipantStatus: PhysicianPosts: 540Joined: 10/22/2018
Corporate overlord matches 4%, annoyingly you can’t front load and have to contribute throughout the year, which has caused me to lose 1% annually. We also have a “pension” of which I’m skeptical. Time to start looking, perhaps. I’ve ended up with way too much in taxable and the asset protection thread has given me pause.

As I transition from 1099 to W2, I will be getting a match now for my retirement accounts.
Wondering… what is a typical match?
Are most step-wise as you increase the years you are at the institution?
Just curious… I think the match I am being offered is good but want to compare.Click to expand…
I’ve never had a job that paid one.
