401(k) Plan

The FLYR 401(k) Plan is an easy, tax-friendly way to help you reach your future financial goals. 


The FLYR 401(k) Plan is an easy, tax-friendly way to help you reach your future financial goals. All US employees are automatically enrolled at 1% contribution and employer match. FLYR will contribute 25% to your account for every dollar you contribute, up to 8%. 


With the 401(k) Plan, you elect a percentage of your pay to contribute, and FLYR automatically deducts that amount from your paycheck and deposits it into your 401(k) account in the investments you’ve chosen.

Your FLYR 401(k) Plan 


All US employees over age 21 are eligible to participate in the FLYR 401(k) Plan.  Participation begins the first day of the pay period after or coincident with the date eligibility requirements are met.


Do you have a Guideline account from a previous employer? 

You can reach out to Guideline via to let them know you want to combine the accounts. In your email, please reference our Plan ID: 17D20004. Please note if your personal email is the same as the one you had previously you will need to let Guideline know or we may not be able to create your account.


Automatic enrollment

You will automatically be enrolled in the FLYR 401(k) Plan at a contribution level of 1% of your pay.* This will be deducted from your paycheck and deposited in the 401(k) Plan. This contribution, along with any matching contributions, will be invested into one of Guideline’s professionally managed portfolios based upon your current age and estimated time to retirement.​

Look for the welcome email from Guideline for detailed information. You may opt-out or choose a different contribution rate at any time by logging on to the Guideline portal to decide how much to contribute and which investments to select. 


* Your pay is defined as W2 compensation.


Opt Out 

If you do not wish to participate in the FLYR 401(k) Plan you may opt out. To opt out, simply set up your account with Guideline and select “Opt Out”. If you initially decide to participate but change your mind at a later date, you can change your contribution rate to 0% at any time. Remember, if you opt out or adjust your contribution rate to 0%, you will not receive any employer contributions from FLYR. 

Your Contributions 

Your contributions to the plan come out of your paycheck before taxes are taken out and can be invested in a variety of ways within the plan. You are immediately 100% vested in both your own contributions and in the employer matching contributions (that means the money is yours as soon as it goes into your account).


  • For 2024, you can set aside up to a total of $23,000 a year 

  • If over 50, you can set aside an additional $7,500 in “catch-up” contributions 


Please be aware that the annual IRS limits apply to any retirement account you may have. You should take the total contribution limit into account, especially if you contributed to a retirement account with a former employer or through an individual IRA.

Participants are only able to have one loan out at a time. In order to be eligible for a loan, you cannot have any other outstanding loans with Guideline. Loans must be paid off in full before a participant is eligible to apply for another loan. 


If you have a retirement plan from a previous employer, you can roll over your funds to your Guideline 401(k) account with FLYR.
