"Let me offer a tip to anyone who is part of a retirement plan with employer-matching contributions: don’t leave money on the table! In my plan, my employer would match every dollar I contributed up to 5% of my annual income. So be sure you contribute whatever is necessary to get every matching dollar you’re eligible for. In the first four years I worked at the hospital, I missed out on matching dollars – that was basically “free money” for my retirement that I passed up. Don’t make the same mistake I did. Enroll today and start getting the match. You’ll be glad you did."
