Track employer contributions to a retirement account
Money can track employer contributions to your 401(k) or other retirement account by transferring the contribution amount to your retirement account whenever you record a paycheck.

To track your employer contributions, set up a retirement account, and then set up Money to track your paycheck, including deductions. It's easier to do this if you have a recent paystub handy.

Note: To perform this advanced task, you must be using the Advanced Account Register and Advanced Bills.
