If you want free money from your employer's retirement matching program but don't have the money on hand to contribute, Lendtable can help.
Here’s how it works:
How and when you'll receive your payouts:
Pay your Lendtable Balance when you separate from your employer, hit retirement age, or cancel your Lendtable service. Our profit-share stays the same no matter how long you use us.
For 401(k)+ service, you must be employed by a company that offers a 401(k) match, 403(b) match, or TSP match. Additionally, you must be at least 25% vested in your employer match within one year of beginning with Lendtable.
For ESPP service, you must be employed by a company that offers an ESPP or company shares match program. Additionally, you must be eligible to sell your shares immediately upon purchase. If you have a holding or lock-up period that prevents you from selling your shares, we are not able to service your account.
No. Lendtable does not run credit checks when you sign up and we do not currently furnish positive or negative credit to the reporting agencies. If you choose not to repay Lendtable, we reserve the right to send you to collections which may affect your credit.
Once you've signed your contract, you’ll be scheduled to receive semi-monthly payouts on the 1st and 15th (or the following business day) each month. In order to release payouts, Lendtable must confirm your contributions have been made.
For our 401(k)+ service, we confirm contributions automatically when you connect your retirement account using Plaid. If you’re unable to do this or we aren’t able to pull the needed information, we will request that you upload your most recent paystub once per month to confirm your deductions.
For our ESPP service, we are currently only able to verify your contributions by paystub. In this case, we will request that you provide your most recent paystub showing your deductions once every 30 days.
A 401(k) match or employer match is a common employee benefit in which employers match an employee's contributions towards their company-sponsored retirement account, like a 401(k). For example, if an employee contributes $6,000 to their 401(k) throughout a year, their employer will match that contribution, adding another $6,000 to the employee's 401(k) for a total of $12,000. An employer match is essentially "free money," and a powerful incentive for employees to contribute to their retirement account.
A 401(k) or 403(b) match is essentially free money your employer puts into your retirement account. Additionally, the money you have in your retirement account will grow exponentially over time. The earlier you begin contributing to your retirement account, the more money you'll have when you retire. So while a few extra thousand dollars from your employer might not seem like much now, it will make a huge difference in your financial future.
Yes. Once you've set your payroll deduction to max out your employee benefit, Lendtable sends funds directly to your linked bank account to replace the post-tax portion of your paycheck that was deducted.
You can find these documents on your employer benefits portal, your 401(k) provider site, or you can contact your employer's HR department to find your 401(k) Plan, ESPP Summary, and other benefits.
Lendtable also searches through publicly available databases if you are unable to locate your plan documents. At the end of day, we want to help you save for your retirement and if your plan documents are available, you can skip this step!
If your employer is publicly traded and offers a discount or match when you purchase shares, Lendtable can help you contribute and earn a profit.
This is how it works:
When and how you'll receive your payouts:
When your shares are transferred to you by your employer, you sell your shares and pay your Lendtable Balance, securing your profit!
An employee stock purchase plan, or ESPP, is a benefit program in which companies offer their employees stock at a discounted price or a match.
Employees contribute to ESPPs via payroll deductions, which will accumulate the offering period to purchase the discounted shares.
At the end of these periods, your employer will use your funds to purchase the company shares at a discount, allowing you to sell them at market value and earn a profit.
Lendtable will always approve you for the maximum amount that your employer will match for your 401(k) or the maximum income percentage you can contribute to your ESPP.
Once you've linked your bank account, Lendtable will schedule your payouts pending other requirements have been completed. You'll receive your first month's payout automatically. After that, Lendtable will send payouts once we confirm you've made your contributions to your company-sponsored account. These payouts occur semi-monthly on the 1st and 15th (or the next business day) of each month.
For 401(k)+ service, we automatically confirm contributions when you connect your retirement account with Plaid. If you are unable to connect your account or we are unable to verify your contributions, we will request that you upload your most recent paystub showing your deductions once a month in order to release your funds.
For ESPP service, we are only able to verify your contributions via paystub at this time.
No, your 401(k) or ESPP contribution statement will not include that information. Lendtable has no direct contact with your employer, so they'll only know if you disclose that information yourself.
No, you will need to update this item with your payroll or benefits provider. It’s important to maximize your employer benefits so as to help you best save for your retirement and Lendtable can help you do that.
No. All of our Lendtable Cash payouts are sent on a semi-monthly cadence which means that the total annual amount of Lendtable Cash you qualify for will be divided into 2 payments per month for a total of 24 payouts per year. Your Lendtable Breakdown will show you the exact amount of money you can expect for each payout.
We do not give out Lendtable Cash in lump sums in order to provide us the time needed to verify your contributions over the course of your time with Lendtable. This is vital for us to ensure we are sending you the correct amount.
Lendtable charges a $10/month subscription fee so that we can continue running our platform and delivering payouts to our growing customer-base, but we operate primarily on a profit-share model. Profit-share means Lendtable charges a percentage of the profit we help you make by maxing out your 401(k) or ESPP employer benefit.
In the case of a 401(k)+ service, the employer 401(k) match is the profit. When you leave your employer, hit retirement age, or cancel your service, Lendtable will request that you pay your balance. Your total balance will be the total cash advance dollars receive and a flat rate of 20% of the profit we help you earn. This rate stays the same no matter how long you use Lendtable. Lendtable does not recoup any investment gain you made while in the market.
In the case of ESPPs, the profit comes from selling your discounted share at the higher market value. Lendtable’s profit-share of ESPP cash advances is a flat rate of 35% of the profit we help you earn.
When you sign your contract, you agree to be charged a $10 platform fee every month while you use Lendtable. We charge this fee to run our payment and platform processing costs so we can issue your twice-monthly payouts and support our products.
Payment differs for ESPP and 401(k)+ services.
For the 401(k)+ service, your Lendtable Balance is due when you leave your employer, hit retirement age, or cancel your Lendtable service. Regardless of how long you use Lendtable, our profit-share is fixed at 20%, so if you plan to work for your employer for 10 years, you won’t owe us anything until you leave or cancel your Lendtable service. If you chose, you can repay by a 401k withdrawal, a 401k loan, by another source, prepay while you’re using Lendtable, or you can work with us to figure out another method.
For the ESPP service, your Lendtable Balance will be due at the end of every offering period, once your discounted shares are transferred to your account by your employer. By selling shares and paying your Lendtable Balance right away, you will secure the profit you’ve made. We do not service accounts where there are holding periods preventing you from selling your shares immediately upon purchase.
No problem! Our model is built on the assumption that you’ll use Lendtable for many years until you leave your employer. You do not need to pay your Lendtable Balance until you leave your employer, hit retirement age and are able to withdraw your funds, or choose to cancel your Lendtable service. No matter how long you use Lendtable, our 20% profit-share rate stays the same.
Lendtable charges a $10/month subscription fee to use our platform and products in addition to our profit-share fee.
For Lendtable 401(k)+ service, our profit-share is 20% of the employer match we help you earn. No matter how many years you use our 401(k)+ service, our profit-share remains the same. Because you'll pay us back with the money you earn from your employer match, you'll always end up with more money in your retirement fund than you started with. While using Lendtable, you’ll keep all contributions (your employer’s and Lendtable’s) in your account. The total balance will compound over time to help you secure your financial future. Lendtable does not recoup any gain you made while invested in the market.
If you withdraw funds from your company-sponsored account to pay this balance and you are under 59 1/2 years old, you may pay an early withdrawal penalty and taxes at your standard rate. An early withdrawal penalty is usually a 10% of the amount withdrawn.
For Lendtable ESPP service, our profit-share is a flat rate of 35% of the profit we helped you earn.
No. Unlike standard bank loans or credit cards that charge interest fees, Lendtable charges a flat fee at the end of the contract. Lendtable does not charge an Annual Percentage Rate and we require no monthly minimum payments towards your outstanding balance.
