Hi all,

First thanks for all the great information/opinions on this board. Its a pleasure to read about the differences between Traditional and Roth IRA's etc. Now to my question:

My employer (a credit union) only matches 50% of up to 6% of my gross income in contributions to my 401k. I've heard of better matches than this, but am not complaining. HOWEVER, they also contribute a percentage (6 1/2% last year) of my gross as a year end bonus. Is this an exceptional benefit? Do many companies do this? Seems pretty stout to me. Too bad I can only choose from about 10 equity funds. :~(
