Why You Should Join

  • Free money from Intuit through eligible* matching contributions—$1.25 for every $1 you contribute, up to 6% of your eligible pay for a maximum $10,000 per year.
  • A clear view of how much you will need in retirement, in the context of monthly income.
  • Flexible saving opportunities through pretax, Roth, or after-tax contributions from your base salary and/or bonus; also, in-plan Roth conversion for even more expanded options.
  • Access to experienced retirement services professionals—via phone, email or chat—to help get you on the right track to reach your retirement goals
*Eligibility for Intuit matching contributions: If you make pre-tax elective contributions (or they are made for you through automatic enrollment), or you make Roth elective contributions, you are automatically eligible to receive Intuit matching contributions based on Intuit’s matching contribution formula in effect at the time. Matching contributions will not be made on regular after-tax (non-Roth) contributions or catch-up contributions.

How to Enroll

Learn how to enroll in the 401(k) plan.

As a new hire (or re-hire), you'll be automatically enrolled in the Plan with a standard contribution of 6%. Contributions will be invested in the Vanguard Target Retirement Trust Plus Fund that most closely matches your anticipated retirement at age 65. You can change this contribution or opt out at any time. You can also request to withdraw automatic contributions made to your account within 90 calendar days after the first automatic contribution is first taken from your pay. To change your participation in the plan, including opting out, visit the Empower website or call Empower at 1-844-INTU401.

If you do not opt out of the Plan or make an active election, your automatic contributions will automatically increase 1% each year on August 1 to help you reach your retirement goals.

Note: your automatic enrollment of 6% does not apply to bonus and/or commission checks. If you wish to contribute and receive a matching contribution from your bonus and/or Commission checks, you must select a variable deferral election. You can do this on the Empower site.

How to Save

You have three ways to contribute to the 401(k) Plan—pretax, Roth and after-tax:

Pretax Contributions

Contributions Deducted from your paycheck before taxes are withheld, reducing current taxable income
Limits* Up to 50% of your eligible compensation, subject to the IRS limit ($19,500 in 2021). If you are age 50 or older in 2021, you can contribute an additional $6,500
Withdrawals Subject to income tax

Roth Contributions

Contributions Deducted from your paycheck after taxes are withheld
Limits* Up to 50% of your eligible compensation, subject to the IRS limit ($19,500 in 2021). If you are age 50 or older in 2021, you can contribute an additional $6,500
Withdrawals Tax-free

After-tax Contributions

Contributions Deducted from your paycheck after taxes are withheld
Limits* Up to 50% of your eligible compensation, or the plan limit ($28,500 in 2021)
Withdrawals Contributions are tax-free, earnings are subject to income tax

* Contribution limits refer to the combined total of Traditional and Roth contributions. After Tax Limit is inclusive of the combined total of Traditional, Roth, and Employer Matching contributions.

† Earnings are tax-free upon withdrawal if you own the Roth 401(k) account for at least five years and have reached age 59½.

Matching Contributions

For each $1 you contribute to your 401(k) savings plan account, Intuit will contribute $1.25, up to 6% of eligible pay to a maximum $10,000 per year. If you’re not already saving 6%, you’re missing out on a valuable part of how Intuit helps you build financial security.

Here's an example of how it works.

Green: Intuit’s contribution
Blue: your contribution
Orange: the total contribution toward your retirement

Retirement Savings graphic

Note: If you change your savings percentage during the year, your year-to-date contributions and pay will be used to determine your match. Also, matching contributions will not be made on regular after-tax contributions or catch-up contributions.

Roth In-Plan Conversions

In-Plan Roth conversions give employees the opportunity to convert pre-tax and/or after tax (non-Roth) deferrals to Roth money within the 401(k) Plan. Taxes may be owed upon conversion, but future qualified distributions will be tax-free. Only vested money is eligible to be converted.

Call Empower Retirement at 1-844-INTU401 (1-844-468-8401) for more information and instructions.

How Matching Contributions are Vested

Vesting is a term used to describe how much of Intuit’s matching contributions you "own." It’s the percentage of the match that you could take with you when you change jobs or retire, and depends on your years of service. You always own 100% of your own contributions. Matching contributions are 100% vested immediately.

How to Select Your Investment Options

The way you invest your 401(k) account is completely up to you—not just your contributions, but also Intuit’s matching contributions and any amount that you roll over from another account. Learn more about how to choose 401(k) investment options.

Your Investment Options

Here are the Intuit 401(k) Plan investment options:

Target Funds

Each of these funds is diversified based on your retirement date, professionally managed, and adjusted over time to maintain the appropriate risk and return as you get closer to your retirement date.

The “target date” of these funds is your expected retirement date, assuming you’ll retire at age 65. For example, if you expect to retire in or around 2045, you could choose the Vanguard Target 2045 Fund.

Target Funds Expense Ratio Asset Class

Self-Directed Brokerage

The Plan also offers a self-directed brokerage option that lets you invest in a wide variety of investments beyond the ones available within the Plan. Investments through the brokerage option are not selected by Intuit or its partners. This option is generally intended for more experienced investors who have the time and knowledge to manage a more sophisticated portfolio.

To use the brokerage option, you must have a minimum balance of $1,000 in the core plan.

The brokerage account is offered through Charles Schwab for an annual fee of $50. To open a brokerage account, call 1-844-INTU401 and speak to an Intuit 401(k) Plan Participant Service Representative.
