401(k) basics

What’s a 401(k), you ask? Here’s some basic information you need to know before you get started. The 401(k) is a company-sponsored retirement savings plan that allows you to make payroll contributions directly into your savings account.

You can contribute up to 75% of your eligible compensation (100% if you’re age 50+), up to the IRS limit each year. For 2022, the IRS limit is $20,500* for traditional pre-tax and Roth contributions combined (2023 contribution limits will be updated when they are released from the IRS in late November of that year). If you’ll be age 50+ as of December 31, 2022, you can contribute an additional $6,500 in catch-up contributions. All participants can contribute an additional $34,400 on an After-Tax basis.

On top of that, ServiceNow offers a company match on your pre-tax and/or Roth contributions! The match is 50% of the first 4% of your annual eligible earnings, up to IRS limits. For each pay period contribution you make to the Plan, the employer match is capped at a net 2% of your eligible earnings. If you’re not already saving 4% between pre-tax and Roth, you’re missing out on a valuable part of how ServiceNow helps you build financial security. After-Tax contributions are not eligible for the employer match.

The contributions you make and the match from ServiceNow are always 100% vested.

*These IRS limits apply to contributions made to any 401(k) Plan during the calendar year, including a prior employer’s 401(k) Plan.

Managing your 401(k)

Good news! Employees and interns are eligible to participate immediately upon your date of hire. Employees are auto-enrolled at a 6% pre-tax contribution rate after 30 days of employment, but interns are not auto-enrolled. You can change this at any time, so don’t worry if your financial situation changes throughout the year.

Flexibility. When making your contribution election, you have the ability to select a different contribution rate and contribution type for your bonus or commission pay.

Annual Auto Increase. If you’re contributing 1% to 9% of your pay to your 401(k), your deferral election will automatically increase by 1% each year (in March) until you achieve a deferral rate of 10%.
