Group Deferred Profit Sharing Plan (DPSP)

DPSP, or deferred profit sharing plan, is the other half of the savings plan offered at PetSmart.  This is the free money PetSmart gives you for investing in your future!   Once you have completed 2 months of service and have enrolled in both the RRSP and DPSP. PetSmart will match your contributions up to 4% of your earnings. DPSP plans are not taxable benefits and the investments remain tax sheltered until retirement..

  • The match is done each pay period and can be viewed on the bottom left of your pay statement .
  • Your vesting, or “ownership,” of the money PetSmart contributes is based on your years of service. After two years of continuous employment, you are entitled to the accumulated value of PetSmart’s contributions.
  • If you don’t make an investment election, you will be defaulted into Fidelity Clear Path Fund (“FCPF”) and we will contact you to make an election.
