Roth options have become a common choice in many 401(k) plans, as well as 403(b) and 457 plans. The appeal with a Roth plan is the potential tax savings when distributions are made in retirement years. Money that goes into a Roth plan today is taxed today, but all earnings and future qualified distributions are free of tax.

With traditional 401(k) plans, money goes in tax-free (and all future growth is free from tax), but qualified distributions are taxed at ordinary income rates.
