    Quick Hit! After-tax Spillover

    If you reach the IRS limit on combined pre-tax and Roth after-tax contributions before year-end ($19,000; $25,000 if age 50+), your contributions and the employer match will automatically stop until the next calendar year. If you elect the after-tax "Spillover" option, your contributions will continue on a traditional after-tax basis and you'll continue to receive the employer match through the end of the current calendar year (subject to IRS limits on contributions and compensation.) You can elect/change your after-tax "spillover" rate anytime during the year from View/Change Contribution Rate in the main MENU of your 401(k) account at mylife.jhrps.com.

    More information about the after-tax "spillover" feature and the contribution rate change schedule is available on FarmCreditFoundations.com.
