Overview

Summit Medical Staffing is proud to offer this great tax deferred retirement plan, 401k.. With our 401k, employees are permitted to make salary deferral contributions to the plan with a 3% match from Summit Medical Staffing. 

 

Advantages

The biggest advantage our Retirement Savings Plan offer is, that once you become eligible to begin using the 401k, you are 100% vested!

With the 401k, whatever we match, you get that money and it stays in your 401k the day it goes into the account.  Here are just a few more advantages to the 401k:
