When am I eligible to start contributing (deferring) to the QuikTrip Corporation Retirement Plan ("Plan")?
Eligible employees are at least 21 years old and who have completed at least one year of service. For purposes of determining whether you are eligible to participate in the Plan, a year of service is a 12-month period during which you complete at least 1,000 hours of service. The 12 months is initially measured from the date you are hired. If during the 12 consecutive months period following the date you are hired you do not complete at least 1,000 hours of service, the computation will start again as of the beginning of the Plan Year following your date of hire. The Plan Year is the 52 or 53 week period which ends on the Friday nearest to the last day in April.
What is the difference between deferring and contributing?
You defer a percentage of your pay and your employer contributes that amount to the Plan to be invested as you direct.
How do I start contributing to the Plan?
The Plan has Automatic Enrollment. That's the easiest way to participate. You don't need to do anything. If you are eligible, you are automatically enrolled in the 401(k) Plan on your enrollment date contributing 3% of your pay each pay period through payroll deduction.
If Automatic Enrollment is not for you, you may enroll in the 401(k) Plan by completing the Enrollment Steps after selecting My Account.
If you are enrolled automatically, your contribution is subject to Automatic Salary Deferral Increases. Your contribution will be increased 1% each year at the end of the Plan year (around May 1) until you are contributing 10% of your compensation.
Can I "opt out" of the Plan's Automatic Salary Deferral Increase?
You may elect out of the Automatic Salary Deferral Increase feature at any time. To do so, please select My Account on the upper right of this page. Input your User ID and Password, select "Contributions" from the dashboard, select "Edit Pre-tax", then select "I do not want to use pre-tax Bump It!".
Can I continue my yearly increases after I reach 10%?

How much can I defer to the Plan?
You can defer between 2% and 75% of your compensation with certain limitations.
What are catch-up contributions?
You are eligible to make additional contributions to the Plan, called catch-up contributions, if you are 50 years of age or older or turn 50 any time during the year. Please see the "Saver" section for the Annual Limits.
Is there a minimum I can defer to the Plan?
The minimum you can defer to the Plan is 2% of your compensation. The Plan document requires that you defer through payroll deductions in 1% increments.
How often can I make changes to my salary deferral?
You may change your salary deferral percentage at any time online or by calling the NestEgg U Customer Solutions Center.
Does QuikTrip match my deferral to the Plan?
QuikTrip will match $0.50 for each $1 deferred on the first 6% you defer. The match is subject to a 6-year graded vesting schedule. The match is funded once per year, usually in July. You must be employed on the last day of the Plan year (usually the end of April) and must have worked 1,000 hours in the Plan year to be eligible to receive the match.
Why must I fill out a Beneficiary Designation Form for our Plan?
You must specifically designate who you want to receive your Plan benefits in the event of your death. If you are married and want to designate someone other than your spouse, your spouse must also sign and have notarized the Beneficiary Designation Form.

Does my participation in the Plan impact my ability to contribute to an IRA?
You are able to contribute to IRAs and Roth IRAs when covered by an employer sponsored retirement plan. The IRS still requires you to abide by several income and participation rules that affect the deductibility of, or ability to contribute to IRAs or Roth IRAs. There are several rules and regulations covering IRAs and Roth IRAs and you are strongly urged to review your circumstances with your financial advisor or tax preparer.
How does the IRS calculate the penalties and taxes if I take money out of the Plan before 59½?
Distributions to a participant from a qualified retirement plan before age 59½ are subject to 20% Federal withholding and an early withdrawal penalty. There are exceptions to the early withdrawal penalty for pre-59½ withdrawals. State income tax may also apply. Please consult with your financial or tax advisor to see if those exceptions apply to your particular situation.
If I request a distribution from the Plan and ask that it be paid to me, how much does the IRS require to be withheld?
Generally, a distribution of your deferrals and any employer contributions made directly to a participant from a qualified plan are subject to 20% Federal withholding. State income tax may also apply. This withholding occurs at the time the distribution is made. If the distribution is a hardship distribution, it is subject to 10% Federal withholding unless you elect no withholding.
