Southwest Airlines offers pilots a Roth contribution option within the Southwest Airlines Pilots Retirement Savings Plan. Roth contributions are made by plan participants through payroll deductions in the same manner as traditional pre-tax contributions. Roth contributions are made with after tax dollars and any earnings accumulate on a tax free basis. With Roth contributions, you’re giving up the immediate tax benefit for much greater tax benefits and flexibility in the future.
