  13. 13. Retirement<br />
  14. 14. 401K<br />A 401(k) is a retirement investment plan that allows an employee to put a percentage of earned wages into a tax-deferred investment account selected by the employer. <br />Employees can choose to deposit part of their earnings into a 401(k) account and not pay income tax on it until the money is later withdrawn in retirement. Employers may choose to, and often do, match contributions that workers make.<br /> The 401(k) account is typically administered by the employer, while the employee may select from different kinds of investment options.<br /> Interest earned on money in a 401(k) account is never taxed before funds are withdrawn.<br />
