Cash Balance Plans
Great for those that are already maximizing their 401(k) plan contributions and still want to save more.
LARGER TAX DEDUCTIONS
The higher the contributions, the higher the tax deduction.
No contribution or investment decisions for employees.
GREATER BENEFIT PAYOUT
Higher contributions lead to higher payouts at retirement.
Cash balance plans are the modern evolvement of traditional defined benefit plans. But unlike defined benefit plans, cash balance plans promise a certain account balance instead of a monthly benefit payout. Each eligible employee’s account is credited based on pay and an indexed interest rate. Contributions are employer-funded and are held in a pooled trust account.
And just like a traditional defined benefit plan, cash balance plan contributions are also protected by the Pension Benefit Guarantee Corporation (PBGC).
