The Power of Compounding
Although it is never too late to start saving for retirement, starting early is one of the best ways to help build retirement
savings. The sooner you start saving, the more you may benefit from tax-deferred compounding.
Start Early. It’s Important!
Jennifer and Brian both saved the same amount over 30 years. However, she started at age 25; he started at age 35.
Jennifer’s savings earned 10 additional years, worth of compound interest by the time they both started withdrawals at age
65. Jennifer benefited from starting early. When will YOU start saving?
Start Early. It’s Important.
Time in the market is more important than timing the market.

Plan Highlights
Eligibility and Enrollment
PayPal employees are immediately eligible to participate
in the Plan. Employees must be at least 18 years old
to participate.
Your Contributions
You can make pre-tax and/or Roth 401(k) contributions, up
to 50% of your earned compensation per pay period.
• Federal law limits the amount you can contribute every
year; the 2016 limit is $18,000.
If you will be age 50 years or older by December 31,
2016, you may make an additional catch-up contribution
to the Plan. In 2016, the catch-up limit is $6,000.
• The Plan includes a Roth 401(k) option. If you decide to
make Roth 401(k) contributions, they will be deducted
from your paycheck after taxes. Your contributions and
any earnings may grow tax-free, and you will not pay
taxes on the money when it’s withdrawn—provided that
any distribution from the Plan account occurs at least
five years following the year you make your first Roth
401(k) contribution, and you have reached age 59½ or
have become disabled.
You may elect two separate 401(k) deferrals—one
for your regular earnings and one for your bonus
earnings. These deferrals can be made on a pre-tax
basis, Roth 401(k) basis, or a combination of both.
Currently, the deferral rate you have designated to
your regular earnings also applies to your bonus
unless you change it.
You can change your contribution rate at any time by
calling Participant Services at 800-724-7526 or by visiting
workplace.schwab.com. Changes will be made as soon
as administratively feasible.
Company Contributions
To help you save more for the future, PayPal will make a
Safe Harbor Match of 100% of your earned compensation
you contribute, up to 4% of your earned compensation.
The employer contribution is paid on a pre-tax basis and
may be taxable at withdrawal.
Vesting is your ownership of your account. You are
always 100% vested in your own contributions, any
earnings on your own contributions, the Safe Harbor
Match contribution and any earnings, and any rollovers
you make to your account.
You can roll over account balances from other employer-
sponsored qualified 401(k) plans into your Plan account.
You can obtain a copy of the Rollover Form online at
workplace.schwab.com or by calling Participant
Services at 800-724-7526.
The Plan is designed primarily to help you save for
retirement; there are IRS restrictions on when money may
be withdrawn from your account. The IRS does, however,
recognize certain events may present a need for you to
access your savings. Under the following circumstances,
you may withdraw money from your account.
You can withdraw money from your Plan account when
you reach the normal retirement age of 65.
You may borrow from your vested account balance.
Loan repayments are made through salary deductions
each pay period.
The minimum loan amount is $1,000.
• The maximum loan amount is $50,000 or 50% of your
vested balance, whichever is less.
• The interest rate for the loan is the Prime Rate at the
time the loan is taken.
• One outstanding loan is allowed at any time.
• The maximum term for a general loan is 5 years, and
10 years for a residential loan.
Most of your retirement income will come from
savings accumulated during your working years.
The PayPal 401(k) Savings Plan can help you
build your retirement savings and help you stay on
track toward your retirement goals.
In Service
You can withdraw money from your Plan account while you
are still employed by PayPal if you are at least age 59½.
These withdrawals are allowed under certain circumstances.
Hardship Withdrawals
A “financial hardship” is defined as a heavy and immediate
financial need that cannot be satisfied by other resources
available to you, including taking a loan from the vested
portion of your Plan account. You may be eligible to
withdraw a portion of your account balance if you
experience a financial hardship. Qualified reasons for a
hardship withdrawal include:
• to prevent eviction from, or foreclosure of, your
primary residence;
• to purchase a primary residence;
• to pay for post-secondary education for you or an
immediate family member;
• to pay for uninsured medical expenses;
• to repair damage to your primary residence; and
to cover funeral expenses.
Hardship withdrawals are subject to ordinary income tax
and may be subject to a 10% federal penalty. Residents of
certain states may also be subject to state penalties. You
will be prohibited from making elective contributions to the
Plan for at least six months after receipt of the hardship
distribution. Safe Harbor Match dollars are not eligible for
hardship withdrawals.
You may receive all of your vested balance of your account
upon termination of employment. Please note: If your vested
account balance upon termination, or at any point thereafter,
is $1,000 or less, including rollovers, your account will be
distributed to you as a single-sum cash distribution unless
you select another distribution option within 90 days of
termination. Taxes and penalties may apply.
If your vested account balance, including rollovers, is more
than $1,000 but less than $5,000, and you fail to elect either
a lump sum or rollover, the balance will be rolled over to a
Rollover IRA administered by Charles Schwab Bank.
If your vested account balance, including rollovers, is
greater than $5,000, your balance will remain in the Plan
until you request a distribution.
If you terminate your employment with PayPal because
you become permanently disabled, you are allowed to
withdraw your money.
In the event of your death, your account balance will be
paid to your beneficiary as you have designated on your
account with Schwab Retirement Plan Services, Inc. If
there is no beneficiary on file with Schwab Retirement Plan
Services, Inc., your account balance will be paid per the
terms specified in the Plan Document.
For more information about your withdrawal options, call
Participant Services at 800-724-7526 to speak with a
Participant Services Representative.
Rollover funds in the Schwab Bank IRA are invested in an FDIC-
insured money market deposit account at Charles Schwab Bank.
Any account balances in Roth 401(k) sources will be rolled over into a
Roth IRA, and the five year qualification period will start over.

The above highlights section is only a brief overview of the Plan’s features
and does not constitute a legally binding document. A more detailed
Summary Plan Description is available at workplace.schwab.com. Please

of the Plan. If you have further questions, call 800-724-7526 to speak
with a Participant Services Representative.
Go to workplace.schwab.com to access the Paycheck
Calculator located under the Calculators & Resources section.
This will help you run scenarios to see how different deferral
percentages will impact your take-home pay. You’ll see that with
pre-tax contributions, the net impact on your take-home pay is
much less than the amount you contribute. There are also several
worksheets available that you can use to help determine how
much savings you may need when you retire. This will help you
move from “How much can you save?” to “How much do you
need to save?
Savings Advantages
Since Social Security may not provide enough income during your retirement years and inflation could reduce the
spending power of your savings, it is important to develop a sound retirement plan. Saving through an employer-
sponsored retirement plan is an important step in saving for retirement.
FirstConsider the Tax Advantages
Pre-tax contributions: The amount you put into the Plan is deducted from your paycheck before it is taxed. The net
impact on your take-home pay will be less than the amount you are contributing to the Plan.
Tax-deferred earnings: In addition to the advantage of having your pre-tax contributions go into the Plan before taxes on
your pay are calculated, your money may grow tax-deferred. This means any current tax due on any earnings stays in the
Plan and contributes to the compounding in your account. Of course, at retirement the withdrawals you make from your
Plan account will be considered income and can be subject to regular income taxes, depending on your tax bracket at
that time. You may be in a lower tax bracket during retirement and your tax burden may be less than it is today.
Tax-free earnings: You also have an opportunity to have your money grow tax-free with the Roth 401(k). This means
you pay taxes at the time of the contribution. Assuming you meet the withdrawal qualifications, both your Roth 401(k)
contributions and any associated investment earnings are distributed from the Plan tax-free. Some of the factors to
consider include your current tax rate, anticipated tax rate at retirement, and how long you anticipate the money will
stay in your retirement account.
Plus, There Is the Company Contribution
When you ask the question, “How much should I save for retirement?,” invariably you will hear the answer, “As much
as you can!” That may be true, but if you’re looking for a number, consider this: You can contribute from 1% to 50% of
your eligible compensation to the Plan, up to $18,000. If you are 50 years of age or older in 2016 and make the additional
catch-up contribution of $6,000, you can contribute a total of $24,000 in 2016. So, save as much as you can, and
remember, PayPal makes a 4% matching contribution as well.
Three steps to enrollment
Step 1 - Decide how much to save.
Quick Tip!
A note about risk: PayPal has made
available different investments in the
hope of meeting the various savings
and investment goals for all participants.
As you make your investment choices,
keep in mind that there is risk involved.
The funds differ in growth potential and
risk. Pursuant to Department of Labor
Regulation 2550.404c-(b)(2)(i)(B)(1)(i), this
Plan is intended to qualify as an ERISA
404(c) Plan that relieves plan fiduciaries
of liability for any investment losses that
result from investment directions made by
Plan participants.
The values of the target funds will
fluctuate up to and after the target
date. There is no guarantee the funds
will provide adequate income at or
through retirement. Diversification
and asset allocation strategies do not
ensure a profit and cannot protect
against losses in a declining market.
The Funds are subject to market
volatility and risks associated with
the underlying investments. Risks
include exposure to international and
emerging markets, small company
and sector equity securities, and fixed
income securities subject to changes
in inflation, market valuations, liquidity,
prepayments, and early redemption.
The funds are built for investors who
expect to start gradual withdrawals
of fund assets on the target date to
begin covering expenses in retirement.
The principal value of the funds is not
guaranteed at any time.
