Not really “saving” taxes - just pushing the liability out

There are a couple of firms that do no match.. I'd still do full 18.5K to save taxes..

Well, like all things in life.. it depends.. if you see yourself making more in retirement than now, don't contributes to pretax 401k, but if you don't.. Like I do.. contribute fully and keep taking small disbursements in retirement or if living a low COL lifestyle after banking.. Either ways, contributing, in my mind, gives you the option... Worst case scenario you'll pay taxes later, but you would've anyways

Wow, never heard of no match. Is this a new thing?
