Roth 401(k)

Roth or Traditional 401(k): Which Might Work Best for You?

Like a traditional 401(k), a Roth 401(k) lets you contribute a portion of your pay to help prepare for retirement. But while a traditional 401(k) offers pre-tax contributions and permits you to defer taxes on gains until withdrawals begin, a Roth 401(k) offers after-tax contributions and permits you to avoid taxes on gains and qualified withdrawals altogether if you meet certain age and holding requirements.
