Does 401k match include company match?

Do employers match catch up contributions?

Should I contribute more to my 401k than my employer matches?

If you have a 401(k) at work and your employer offers a match, you should always invest enough in the 401(k) to claim the full match. If you don't, you're giving up free money. You can't afford to give up free money and should take advantage of the help your employer provides to ensure you save enough for retirement.

Will my 401k contributions automatically stop at limit?

Should I contribute to a 401k without match?

Unfortunately, not all employers with 401(k) plans offer a company match. But if you work for one of the employers who does not offer a company match, should you still invest in a 401(k)? The short answer: Yes, but as a secondary option to your own IRA.
