Types of Plans:

401(k)/Profit Sharing

An employee-sponsored retirement account where employees can contribute income on a pretax basis, while employers may match contributions.

Simple 401(k)

Employees contribute a portion of their salary on a pretax basis, and employers must either: Match each employee’s contribution up to 3%, or make a nonelective contribution of 2%. These limits are lower than those found in the 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan approach.

Defined Benefit Plans

An employer promises a specified pension payment, lump-sum or combination at retirement. The amount of the payment(s) are determined using an actuarial calculator, which evaluates employee earning history, tenure of service, and age. This amount is predetermined, not based on employee contributions or investment returns, and must be serviced by an actuary.
