Coming soon to YWCARF: new self-services features to assist you in managing your account.
A locked-in monthly addition to your account.
Your YWCA association makes a monthly contribution to your retirement account based on your salary. That contribution then accrues interest provided by the Fund, calculated annually using the average of 10-year Treasury securities for the month of October in the preceding year.
But did you know that YWCARF credits your account monthly with an additional 40% of your association’s contribution?
While the interest your account receives is dependent on the investment markets, the 40% match is locked in. This very important step in your account growth impacts your monthly contribution as below.
Participants who are not considered Highly Compensated Employees can make additional after-tax contributions on a monthly basis. Find out more.
For more information on how your YWCARF account is structured, we invite you to watch this short video.
