Enroll Online

Set up your account at principal.com/Welcome. After registering, select your retirement plan name from the Account Summary page to view your retirement plan dashboard.

Automatic Enrollment

  • You are automatically enrolled at a 3% pre-tax contribution when you are newly eligible to participate in the Modine 401(k) Plan.
  • Your 3% contribution will be automatically invested in a T. Rowe Price Retirement Target Date Fund based on your date of birth and a retirement age of 65.
  • While enrollment is automatic, you have 30 days before being enrolled to change your contribution rate, direct contributions to other investment options available, or decline participation.

Automatic Increase

  • You will be set up with an automatic annual increase unless you make another election.
  • Your contribution percentage will increase by 1% each year on January 1, up to a maximum of 10%.

 Earn the Modine Match

  • If you aren’t investing 6% into the Modine 401(k) Plan, you are leaving money on the table!
  • Modine contributes a Safe Harbor Matching Contribution equal to:
    • 100% of the first 3% of compensation you contribute to the plan (whether pre-tax or Roth), plus.
    • 50% of the next 3% of compensation you contribute as an elective deferral (whether pre-tax or Roth).

Contribution Limit

  • You may contribute 1% to 75% of your eligible compensation through pre-tax contributions, Roth contributions, or a combination of the two.
  • Both contribution types are subject to the IRS contribution limit of $23,000.
  • If you will be age 50 by the end of the calendar year, you may qualify to make an additional “catch-up” contribution of up to the IRS catch-up limit of $7,500.


  • In a retirement plan, the term “vesting” refers to ownership.
  • You will always own, or be vested in, 100% of the contributions you make into the account.
  • You become 100% vested in company contributions into your account after two full years of employment.

Pre-tax versus Roth Contributions

Pre-tax contributions lower your taxable income now. The money grows tax-deferred, and withdrawals are taxed later.

Roth contributions are also known as after-tax contributions. You pay taxes on contributions now and then any withdrawals you make later are tax-free.
