Each account must have a unique account holder/beneficiary relationship enrolled in AMC and/or payroll direct deposit and make at least one systematic contribution of $25 or more during the 2024 calendar year. Qualifying acccount relationships could receive a $100 contribution for their participation. There are no residency or age restrictions for the account holder or the beneficiary.

Yes, as long as you meet the eligibility requirements for the Dash to Save More incentive program.

In the event the account holder exchanges from one portfolio to another option or decides to invest in multiple portfolios during the eligibility window, the incentive will be applied equally across the portfolio(s) that are funded at the end of the calendar year. This guideline will also apply in the event of a portfolio roll as described in the Plan Disclosure Document.

The contributions will be paid in February of the year after they are earned. You will be notified after year-end if you have met the eligibility requirements for the Dash to Save More incentive program.

Yes, if you are currently enrolled in either AMC or payroll direct deposit with a monthly contribution of $25 or more you may be eligible as long as a systematic contribution is received by December 31, 2024 and you have at least one funded account at the end of the calendar year.
