2022 Profit Sharing Contribution

K-C’s benefits package is an important one designed to support your overall wellbeing. This includes the investment K-C makes in your 401(k) through the Company match and annual discretionary profit sharing contribution (4% target). Despite the business challenges we faced together last year, we’re excited to announce that your hard work, perseverance, and commitment have resulted in a 2022 profit sharing contribution into your 401(k) & Profit Sharing Plan (PSP) account.

Based on K-C’s 2022 adjusted Earnings Per Share, the profit sharing contribution is 3.6%, for a total company contribution of $44 million. This means K-C contributed 3.6% of your eligible 2022 earnings into your 401(k) account on February 3.

Fidelity: One Stop for HSA and 401(k) Savings

The best part is that there are no investment minimums or account transaction fees with Fidelity, so you can start investing right away. Fidelity HSAs are brokerage accounts, giving you more options for simple, seamless investing of your HSA money in a range of mutual funds, stocks, bonds, exchange-traded funds (ETFs), Treasuries, and more.
