Regular full-time, temporary full-time, part-time, and intern (aged 21 and above) employees who are regularly scheduled to work at least 30 hours a week are eligible for the 401(k) plan.
The ABK 401(k) Plan is a savings plan for your retirement through Fidelity. You will be automatically enrolled in the plan at a 1% contribution rate after 30 days of service (or 30 days after 6 months of service for temporary full-time employees, part-time employees, and interns aged 21 and above). If you do not wish to contribute to the 401(k) Plan, you must change your contribution rate to 0% within 30 days of your eligibility date. Alternatively, you can contribute up to 75% of your base salary and 100% of your bonus each year on a bi-weekly basis through payroll deductions, up to the annual IRS limit of $23,000 for 2024. If you are over the age of 50, you can also make additional catch-up contributions up to $7,500 in 2024. You have the option to contribute to a traditional (pre-tax) or Roth 401(k) (post-tax) plan, or some combination of the two.
Additionally, you can contribute up to $69,000 for 2024 at a maximum of 20% of your income to an After-tax 401(k) with the option of an in-plan Roth conversion!
Note: If you have made contributions to another 401(k) during the year, you will need to manage your contributions to ensure you do not exceed the IRS annual limits.
Managing Your Account
You can change your contribution percentage and investments anytime. Please refer to the Contributions Change Guide for instructions on changing your contributions and allow for 2 payroll cycles to see the changes become effective. If you have questions about setting your contributions or which investments are best for you, you can meet with a Fidelity advisor for a complimentary advisory session. Additionally, all 401(k) participants are eligible for a complimentary advisory session with Fidelity. Log in to the Fidelity Member Portal or call Fidelity at 1-800-835-5095 to make changes or set up an advisory session.
Company Match and Vesting
Currently, the company will contribute on a discretionary basis to your savings by matching 25% of your total contribution (including the catch-up for those 50 or older) to the Traditional and/or Roth 401(k), up to the annual IRS limits. Employees are immediately 100% vested in the company match.
Note: Company contributions do not impact the annual IRS limits.
Rollovers and Withdrawals
You can rollover part or all of an eligible rollover distribution you receive from an eligible retirement plan. An eligible retirement plan is a qualified Section 401(a), a 403(a) annuity plan, a 403(b) annuity contract, an eligible 457(b) plan maintained by a governmental employer, and an individual retirement account and individual retirement annuity; pension plans cannot be rolled into the Plan. To start a rollover, log into the Fidelity Member Portal and select Quick Links> Rollovers> Start a Rollover> Rollover to Plan.
If you have a balance in your rollover contributions account, you may elect to withdraw all or a portion of it. Generally, withdrawals are also permitted when you terminate your employment, retire, reach age 59, become permanently disabled, or have a severe financial hardship as defined by the Plan. If you apply for a financial hardship withdrawal, you must first exhaust all other assets reasonably available to you and the minimum hardship withdrawal is $500. Keep in mind that withdrawals are subject to income taxes and possibly to early withdrawal penalties. You may also borrow from your account for any reason, but if you fail to repay your 401(k) loan (based on the original terms of the loan), it will be considered in default and treated as a distribution subject to income tax and possibly early withdrawal penalties.
For additional details, review the 401(k) Summary Plan Description and the 401(k) Loan FAQ.

The Health Savings Account (HSA) is available to all employees enrolled in the Collective Health CDHP plan.
An HSA is a personal savings account that you can contribute to pre-tax and can be used to pay for eligible expenses now, or later in life. It is administered by HealthEquity.
To participate in an HSA, certain rules apply:
Your contributions are limited annually by the IRS (in 2024 $4,150 for employee only and $8,300 for families, with an additional $1,000 catch-up for those over age 55). Funds rollover from year to year and never expire, can be invested, and are triple tax-advantaged!
Can I make changes throughout the year?
Yes! You can change your contributions at any time by going to Workday > Benefits > Change Benefits.
Your HSA is made up of company contributions (company seed and Benefits@Play earnings) and your own contributions. All contributions count towards the IRS maximum limit. Your total contribution in Workday will be automatically reduced by the employer contribution; however, it does not account for Benefits@Play earnings. You can initiate an HSA benefit change in Workday throughout the year to account for what you have earned via Benefits@Play.
Funds are available as deposited from your paycheck and the company. If you have an expense that is larger than your current balance, you can pay out of pocket and then submit a withdrawal once enough funds have accumulated in your HSA.
Employees over age 55 can contribute an additional $1,000 in catch-up contributions. Below are the company funding amounts that you must consider when making your contribution elections.
|Employee + Dependent(s)
You can use your HealthEquity debit card to pay for eligible expenses. Should you pay out-of-pocket at the time of service, you can submit for reimbursement through the HealthEquity Member Portal. For more information, please refer to the HSA Information site or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Funds in your account will rollover year to year and never expire. If you have funds in another HSA and would like to roll them over to your HealthEquity HSA, download the rollover form, and send the completed form to HealthEquity via mail, fax, or email.

The Flexible Spending Account (FSA) is available to regular full-time employees who are regularly scheduled to work at least 30 hours a week and medical plan enrollment is not required. If you’re enrolled in CDHP and not eligible for HSA, you can elect FSA as an alternative.
FSA allows you to set aside pre-tax dollars from your paycheck into an account to be used for eligible healthcare expenses. FSAs are funded by employee contributions only and are available immediately once elected. The amount you elect will be deducted from your paycheck on a pro-rated basis throughout the year.
Note: All unused funds are forfeited at the end of each calendar year and you cannot make changes to your election amount unless you experience a qualified life event and submit your changes within 30 calendar days. You are not automatically re-enrolled in this account annually, you must re-elect this account during open enrollment or within 30 calendar days during a qualified life event.
This account is managed by HealthEquity and funded as contributions are made from your paycheck. You will receive a debit card to use for payments on eligible expenses. Should you pay out-of-pocket for an eligible expense, you can reimburse yourself through the HealthEquity Member Portal. For more information, please refer to FSA Information.
The Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) is available to employees who do not have an HSA but are participating in the Benefits@Play program.
HRA’s are fully funded by ABK to help you pay for eligible medical expenses. HRA money rolls over from year to year while you are employed with ABK. Unused funds in this account are forfeited if you leave ABK or switch to the plan that offers the HSA. You can earn as shown below:
|PPO 500, In-Network, Centivo or Kaiser
|Employee + Dependent(s)
You can use your HealthEquity debit card to pay for eligible expenses. Should you pay out-of-pocket at the time of service, you can submit for reimbursement through the HealthEquity Member Portal. For more information, please refer to the HRA FAQ or email email@example.com.
Regular full-time employees who are regularly scheduled to work at least 30 hours a week are eligible for the dependent care account (DCA).
DCA is a flexible spending account that allows you to contribute a portion of your paycheck tax-free to pay for qualified dependent care expenses so that you and your spouse can either work or look for work. The IRS limits annual contributions to $5,000 on income tax returns if single or married filing jointly, and $2,500 if married filing separately. You can use your DCA to pay for care for children under age 13 that you claim as dependents, as well as adults or other relatives who are incapable of caring for themselves (if you provide more than 50% of their support).
Note: There is an extended grace period for the Dependent Care FSA. For the 2023 plan year, all unused funds remaining after April 15, 2024, will be forfeited. You will have until April 30, 2024, to reimburse yourself with your 2023 funds for expenses incurred between January 1, 2023 - April 15, 2024.
You cannot make changes to your election amount unless you experience a qualified life event and submit your changes within 30 days. You are not automatically re-enrolled in this account annually, you must re-elect this account during open enrollment or within 30 days during a qualified life event.
Additionally, DCA funds are subject to IRS discrimination testing annually; thus, the IRS may determine that you are ineligible for the full $5,000 election mid-way through the year. If you are impacted by this testing you will be notified by the benefits team and your election will be automatically reduced to the amount the IRS approves.
This account is managed by HealthEquity and funded as contributions are made from your paycheck. If you only have a DCA you will not receive a debit card to use for payment. Instead, all claims for reimbursement must be submitted through the HealthEquity Member Portal. If you have any other fund account (HSA, FSA, etc), you can use your debit card for payment. For more information, please refer to the DCA Information site or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
