Employer-Sponsored Retirement Plans

401(k) Plans

With these popular plans, employee contributions actually represent deferred compensation and therefore could or may offer income-tax incentives. 401(k) plans also allow employers to make matching or profit-sharing contributions on their employees' behalf — and receive a corporate tax deduction.

  • Investment may be Trustee or Participant directed
  • Flexible withdrawals may be designed into the plan document

Profit-Sharing plans

With these plans, employers may share profits with employees by funding the retirement plan in full according to a set formula or discretionary amount. However, contributions are not required every year — this is strictly at the employer's discretion. Employer contributions receive a corporate tax deduction.

  • Employees are not allowed to make contributions
  • Investment may be Trustee or Participant directed
  • Flexible withdrawals may be designed into the plan document

Cash-balance plans

These plans are fundamentally the same as defined-benefit plans, but with the advantages of a profit-sharing plan. The key difference is that cash-balance plans provide benefits in the form of a determinable account balance rather than an ending retirement benefit.

  • Withdrawals are more flexible than with defined-benefit plans
  • Advantageous to small or privately owned businesses and those who wish to receive larger retirement contributions

Money-purchase plans

These plans are similar to profit-sharing plans, except that the annual employer contribution amount is defined by the plan document and is not discretionary. Employer contributions receive a corporate tax deduction.

  • Investment may be Trustee or Participant directed
  • Flexible withdrawals may be designed into the plan document
  • May be combined with other retirement plans
