Hi There!

I know this is easy but I really don't know it, I suppose it means 40 100 a year, please help me with this, this k is very used to shorten.

The perks of Publix is that they have a 401k starting at 6 months for even part time employees.

Great to know that in just a few minutes I got a reply for you guys!

    Actually no, in this case it's a subsection: 401(k) is subsection k of section 401 of the US Internal Revenue Code. It relates to pensions, so a 401(k) or 401k is also a kind of pension scheme based on this part of the code.

    crossposted with another UK member, showing the term is well known even outside the USA

    The whole thing means that Publix starts contributing to employees' pensions after they have worked there for six months, even if they only work part time.
