6 Most Important Benefits in Your 50s
1. Contribute at least 6 percent to your 401(k).
If you do nothing else, do this. For every dollar you contribute, Intuit matches $1.25 to your 401(k), up to 6 percent. If you don’t participate, that’s like telling your boss you don’t want a 7.5 percent raise. Think about it. Now that you’re over 50, you can save even more—an additional $6,000 per year in catch-up contributions. Note: You must actively enroll to make catch-up contributions. You are not automatically enrolled when you turn 50. Enroll now.
2. Own a piece of Intuit and save for your future.
By enrolling in the Employee Stock Purchase Plan (ESPP), you can set aside 2 percent to 15 percent of your total pay and invest it in Intuit shares—at a 15 percent discount! Whether you’re planning for your retirement or just setting aside money for a rainy day, the ESPP is a great way to sweeten your savings strategy.
3. Get a second opinion.
You can never be too careful with your health. If you’re uncertain about a medical diagnosis or the appropriate treatment, Best Doctors can help. Through this service, which is offered as part of your Intuit medical benefits (at no cost to you), you can get advice on your medical condition, receive advice from a doctor, and even find a Best Doctor for your condition.
4. Care for your family.
Of course we support you in caring for your children, but did you know that we also help you care for your elderly parents or relatives? Intuit also offers access to additional caregiving services and elder care legal advice through the legal insurance plan.
5. Plan for your retirement.
Your golden years are never as far away as they seem. Now’s the time to create a budget that works for you and put away a percentage of each paycheck for your future. Intuit gives you free access to industry-leading tools and resources that can help you create a plan that works for you.
6. Choose wellness for life.
From health assessments and biometric screenings to our Activity Program, Fit for Life Incentive and Real Appeal weight loss program, we give you lots of opportunities and encouragement to stay healthy and save money. It’s not just about looking and feeling great—it’s also about having all of the tools you need to lead a well-balanced life.
How many of these programs have you taken advantage of already? What are you missing out on? You can use this checklist to make sure you’re investing in your future, staying healthy, and taking care of your family. Win. Win. Win.
