HR Newsletter – September 2018

Free money…in your 401k match! 

If you have not started contributing to your 401k with ESS, you are missing out on free matching money! Remember, we match 100% of your contributions up to 3% of your pay and then we match 50% through the next 2%. If you have questions about how much to start or need to reevaluate your election, our quarterly visit with our financial advisor will be on Friday, September 14th! We will be sending out an email to reserve your time to meet.
