Group Deferred Profit Sharing Plan (DPSP)

After you have completed 2 months of service, PetSmart matches a portion of the contribution you make to the DPSP. This means tax savings, since you don’t pay taxes on the contributions you make or on the “free money” from PetSmart (PetSmart’s matching contributions).

  • The match is done each pay period.
  • 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.
