Southwest Airlines

Your Southwest Airlines Pilots Retirement Savings Plan is administered at Charles Schwab & Co., Inc. The PCRA brokerage account option allows for expanded investment options and management by ACT Wealth Management.

Your Southwest Airlines Profit Sharing is administered by Empower. Once you are 59 1/2, you may roll your Profit Sharing over into an IRA through an in-service roll over. This IRA can be professionally managed by ACT Wealth Management.

If eligible, your excess contributions will be redirected in up to three non-qualified plans: excess benefit plan, “Top Hat” plan, and 401(a)(17) plan. ACT Wealth Management is also able to provide guidance on profit sharing plans.
