Enrolling in the Teamsters-National 401(k) Savings Plan is one of the best things you can do to help yourself prepare for tomorrow.

The Teamsters-National 401(k) Savings Plan is an example of Teamsters using their combined buying power to negotiate valuable programs and services for members.

Under the laws governing 401(k) plans, before a member can join, an employer must agree to participate. The Plan’s trustees—one-half from the union and one-half from participating employers—monitor and direct the services provided by this Plan. It is a qualified 401(k) plan that lets you deduct a portion of your salary and save it in an investment account. And, it is governed by ERISA (Employee Retirement Income Security Act), which can help protect plan participants.

Prudential Retirement® (Prudential) provides administrative and investment services for the Teamsters-National 401(k) Savings Plan. The Board of Trustees selected Prudential after conducting a search and evaluation of retirement plan service providers.
