You have three ways to save your Base Compensation: pre-tax, Roth 401(k) after-tax and regular after-tax. Pre-tax contributions reduce your taxable income. Roth 401(k) after-tax and regular after-tax contributions are deducted after taxes have been taken. Base Compensation includes your base pay, commissions, lump-sum merit awards, vacation pay, holiday pay, short-term disability pay and any pre-tax contributions you may make to this Plan. For a full list of eligible base pay, please refer to the Contributions and Accounts section of the Summary Plan Description.
