Benefits at Kubota

FINANCIAL
 
401(k)
Those employees wishing to join the Company 401(k) Plan may do so after completing 90-days of Company service. At 90-days the employee may begin making deferrals from each paycheck to the Plan. After completing one year of Company service they become eligible for Company Matching Contribution and for the "Age Weighted Contribution”. The current company matching contribution is 50% of the first 6% of the employee deferral.
 
401(k) Age Weighted Contribution
Employees are eligible for this benefit whether or not they enroll in the 401(k) Plan. The special benefit is referred to as the "Age Weighted Contribution”. The discretionary "Age Weighted Contribution” is made directly to your 401(k) account by the Company when you become eligible. The amount is a percentage of your base annual salary. The percentage is related to your age and Company service. Payments are made directly to your 401 (k) account in four quarterly installments each year. This Age Weighted Contribution benefit is vested over a period of five (5) years.
