Types of Plans

Defined Contribution Plans

Traditional Profit Sharing
Traditional plans divide the employer's annual contribution among participants as a uniform percentage of pay.


Profit Sharing Advantage
An "age-neutral" plan that allows businesses to favor certain groups of employees with higher allocations. The allocation does not depend on the ages of the participants and can be used to favor business owners who are younger than their employees.

Age weighted profit sharing plans are designed to give the greatest benefit to those employees who are closer to retirement and have less time to accumulate retirement funds. Frequently this includes the business owner and key employees.

Profit Sharing Select offers flexible annual contributions and flexibility in the way the contributions are allocated. Subject to certain IRS tests, Profit Sharing Select allows the employer to allocate a greater portion of the annual contribution to those select groups of employees who the employer most wishes to benefit.

Traditional Money Purchase
Money Purchase plans are appropriate for stable, established businesses that prefer a fixed contribution formula. This type of plan allows a business to maximize its deductions to a greater extent than would be allowed under a profit sharing plan. Money Purchase plans also permit equal treatment of employees who share the same compensation level.

Target Benefit
Target benefit plans are suited to stable businesses that can commit to a fixed contribution formula. These plans favor older employees, taking age, salary and length of service into consideration.
Defined Benefit Plans

This plan specifies, or defines, the amount of retirement benefit that each participant will receive. Employer costs can vary over time and are recalculated each year.

412(i) Defined Benefit Plan
The 412(i) defined benefit plan is suited to the established business that wishes to maximize contributions and tax deductions to a greater extent than is permitted by a traditional defined benefit plan.
