Retirement done right. Or is it? You can pay now and save later with a Roth 401(k). The new Roth 401(k) retirement plan is basically a traditional 401(k) that is not bound by income thresholds, and is supplemented with the Roth IRA benefit of tax-free growth and withdrawals.

Roth 401(k) plans become effective January 1, 2006, and will allow you to contribute after-tax earnings into an employer 401(k). The contributions you make will grow tax-free, forever. When you make withdrawals from a Roth 401(k), you will owe no tax. None. Is a Roth 401(k) right for your retirement? You make the choice.

I found a website about the new Roth 401k that has really good and detailed information:
