What Your 401(k) Could Look Like in the Next 20 Years

For building retirement savings​, 401(k) savings plans have become one of the better deals. Traditional 401(k)s allow you to save pre-tax dollars right out of your paychecks to build a retirement nest egg. The Roth 401(k) has been added to many workplace plans; it allows you to build savings that you can withdraw tax-free in retirement as long as you meet certain prerequisites. Many employers provide matching contributions to employee plans, making them an even better deal.
