Sub Headline: Combo Pension and Contribution Plans Can Offer More Retirement Options Synopsis: Profit sharing plans coupled with cash balance plans seem to be the new tandem of retirement planning vehicles over traditional 401(k)s. Watch the video interview with retirement expert Jodie Dailey, CRS, QPA, ERPA. Content: Cash Balance A cash balance plan is a defined benefit plan that defines the benefit in terms that are more characteristic of a defined contribution plan. In other words, a cash balance plan defines the promised benefit in terms of a stated account balance. In most cash balance plans, a participant's account is credited each year with a "pay credit" (such as 5 percent of compensation from his or her employer) and an "interest credit" (either a fixed rate or a variable rate that is linked to an index such as the one-year treasury bill rate). Increases and decreases in the value of the plan's investments do not directly affect the benefit amounts promised to participants. As a result, investment risks are borne by the employer. When a participant becomes entitled to receive benefits under a cash balance plan, the benefits that are received are defined in terms of an account balance. For example, assume that a participant has an account balance of $100,000 when he or she reaches age 65. If the participant decides to retire at that time, he or she would have the right to an annuity based on that account balance. Such an annuity might be approximately $8500 per year for life. In many cash balance plans, however, the participant could instead choose (with consent from his or her spouse) to take a lump sum benefit equal to the $100,000 account balance. If a participant receives a lump sum distribution, that distribution generally can be rolled over into an IRA or to another employer's plan if that plan accepts rollovers. Profit Sharing Plan Employer contributions to a profit sharing plan in most cases are discretionary - there is no required percentage and annual contributions are not required, but they do need to be “recurring and substantial.” Contributions can be made even if there are no profits. Employer contributions are tax deductible and contributions are generally not taxed to the employee. Earnings accumulate income tax-deferred, are taxed as ordinary income during distributions and may be eligible for 10-year income averaging.1At retirement the employee can, roll over the plan to a traditional or Roth IRA, or to another employer plan that accepts rollovers. Except for more than 5% owners, required minimum distributions (RMDs) must begin by April 1 of the later of the year following the year when the participant reaches age 70½, or the year following the year when the participant retires. More-than- 5% owners must begin to receive distributions by April 1 of the year following the year they reach age 70½. Jodie Dailey is a co-contributor to this press release. Syndicated financial columnist, talk show host and popular platform speaker Steve Savant interviews retirement expert Jodie Dailey. Steve Savant’s Money, the Name of the Game is an hour-long financial talk show for financial professionals distributed online in 5 ten-minute video press releases Monday through Friday through Trans World News 280 media outlets, social media networks and industry portals.

What is CASH BALANCE PLAN? What does CASH ADVANCE PLAN mean? CASH BALANCE PLAN meaning - CASH BALANCE PLAN definition - CASH BALANCE PLAN explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. A cash balance plan is a defined benefit retirement plan that maintains hypothetical individual employee accounts like a defined contribution plan. The hypothetical nature of the individual accounts was crucial in the early adoption of such plans because it enabled conversion of traditional plans without declaring a plan termination. The employees' accounts earn a fixed rate of return that can change over a period of time from year to year. Although it works much like a defined-contribution plan, it is actually a defined-benefit plan for legal purposes. In 2003, over 20% of US workers with defined benefit plans were in cash balance plans, according to Bureau of Labor Statistics data. Most of these plans resulted from conversions from traditional defined-benefit plans. The status of such plans was in legal limbo (see below), and the number of conversions slowed. However, legislation was recently passed that cleared the way for plan sponsors to adopt cash balance plans. Cash balance conversions have been controversial and have raised the ire of workers and their advocates. In 2005 the Government Accountability Office (GAO) released a report analyzing the effects of cash balance conversions on worker benefits. They found that in a typical conversion the cash balance plan would provide lower benefits for most workers than if the defined-benefit plan had remained unchanged and the worker had stayed in their job until retirement age. This decline in benefits tends to be largest for older workers. This is because in a traditional plan, where benefits are based on final average pay, the "value" of the benefits accrues much faster for older workers than for younger workers. In contrast, in a DC or cash balance plan, contributions are made at the same rate (by workers in the DC plans and by the employer in the cash balance plan), and a dollar contributed to a younger worker's account is actually more valuable because it has more time to compound before retirement. Thus some argue that cash balance plans hurt older workers. On the other hand, this may not be the relevant comparison. If the alternative to cash balance conversion is that the plan is frozen or terminated (with the vested balance going to the worker), all workers would be much worse off than in a cash balance conversion. This is a realistic possibility; tens of thousands of defined benefit plans have been frozen and/or terminated in the last two decades, far more than have been converted to cash balance plans. Likewise, for the many employees who leave their job before retirement (whether voluntarily or not), many would be better off under the cash balance conversion than under the original defined-benefit plan. In addition, about half of cash balance conversions have grandfathered in some or all of the existing participants in the defined-benefit plan. The ubiquitous 401(k) plan is an example of a defined contribution plan because the Internal Revenue Code §414(i) states hat the term defined-contribution plan means any plan that provides retirement benefits to a worker based solely on the amount contributed to the (worker’s individual) account and any (investment) income, gains net of any expenses and losses. Under the definition of accrued benefit under Code §411(a)(7)(A)(ii) in the case of a plan that is not a defined benefit plan, means the balance the employee’s account. On the other hand, for defined-benefit plans, Section §411(a)(7)(A)(i) states that "accrued benefit" means "the employee’s annual benefit" as it is "determined under the plan … expressed in the form of an … … commencing at normal retirement age." Finally, the Code’s definition for defined benefit plans are all plans that are not defined contribution plans.

Self-employed business owners have benefited from sizable tax savings and large retirement plan contributions. There can be many reasons, however, when owners need to terminate their plan. Employers want to terminate a plan to avoid an ongoing funding requirement. The following are valid reasons when you can terminate a plan: * the company itself is having financial challenges and may be going out of business; * the company does not have the financial flexibility to fund future contributions; * shareholders and partners are concerned about the plan liability We also answer the question - can a cash balance plan be rolled over into an IRA

But they are becoming very popular in recent years. In this video, we take a close look at several cash balance plan strategies to maximize business owner contributions. Business owners in search of sizable tax deductions and large retirement contributions should consider a cash balance plan. There are certainly some tips and tricks that can be utilized to increase owner contributions. Cash balance plans can be complex, so make sure you stay within the cash balance plan rules. If you don’t pay close attention, you could find yourself in trouble with the IRS and the Department of Labor. If the plans are structured correctly, they can be a great retirement solution. We also take a look at some of the testing concerns. Basically all employer sponsored retirement plans (including defined benefit plans and defined contribution plans) need to satisfy non-discrimination testing to ensure that retirement benefits are not in favor of the owner and any highly compensated officers. But the good news is that owners have opportunities to customize cash balance plans that can impact employee contributions!

What is a cash balance plan? A cash balance plan is a defined benefit plan. There are two basic types of retirement plans. There are defined contribution plans like your typical 401k and your Roth IRA. They are considered a defined contribution plan because you put a certain amount of money into it and how the investments perform is what you get out of it. With a defined benefit plan, this is like a classic pension that your father or your grandfather had when he worked in the mill, basically all the investment risk is on the company. Yes, you have to put money in that is taken out of your paycheck but the company promises you a certain amount after 20 or 30 years working there. All the risk is on the employer. A cash balance plan is a type of defined benefit plan. But in reality it is a defined contribution plan masquerading as a defined benefit plan. It is another IRA masquerading as a pension. You have to follow all the pension rules but if you are a high earner, especially in the last half of your career, you can really put a lot of money into these things, all tax deferred. So it behooves you to learn about this type of plan and see if it is right for you.

This video shows the difference between a defined-benefit pension plan and a defined-contribution plan. The core difference between these two types of plans boils down to what the employer is promising: with a defined-benefit pension plan, the employer is promising the employee a series of annuity payments after the employee retires. With the defined-contribution pension plan (e.g., a 401(k) plan), the employer is promising to make contributions to the employee's retirement account.

What are defined benefit plans – What is a defined benefit plan? 1-800-566-1002 http://www.RetireSharp.com . What are the best types of defined benefit plans and learn how you can avoid the most common mistakes that individuals have made when looking to purchase a personal define benefit plan for retirement. Defined Benefit Plan on Retirement Finances There are many different retirement insurance plans available for retirees. Some are affiliated with your company; others are available through the federal government or private companies. Defined benefit plans are a type of pension plan that will benefit you throughout your retirement. The defined benefit pension plan was the most common type of pension plan before 401k plans took over (which is a form of a defined contribution plan). Still, labor unions tend to still use this plan, as do self-employed individuals or business owners with a small amount of employees. These pension plans need a substantial amount of money being pumped into the investments, so more affluent workers are more likely to look into this as the best retirement insurance plan. What is a defined benefit plan? A defined benefit plan is an employer-sponsored retirement income plan that promises a specified monthly benefit at retirement. The promised amount could be a defined amount, say $200/month. However, it is more commonly based on a formula using factors such as salary history, your age, duration of employment, etc. The company controls all of the investment risk and portfolio management and is protected, with certain limitations, by federal insurance. According to the IRS website, a defined benefit plan is a valuable and smart option to consider when making the choice between retirement plans. Some of the reasons are These plans are contributed only by your employer, but sometimes have stipulations that require contributions to be made by the employee as well.

In this course, we will discuss the basics of retirement plans. A retirement plan is a program established and funded by the employer and-or employees to fund employees’ retirement years. Organizations are not required to offer retirement plans to employees beyond contributions to Social Security. A defined benefit plan is a retirement program in which employees are promised a pension amount based on age and years of service. A small percentage of companies in the private sector offer defined benefit plans to their employees, while public-sector employers still provide them. A defined contribution plan is a retirement program in which the employer and/or employee makes an annual payment to an employee’s retirement account. The key to this plan is the contribution rate; employee retirement benefits depend on fixed contributions and investment earnings. Profit-sharing plans, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), and 401(k) plans are common defined contribution plans. Because of their portability and other features, these plans are sometimes preferred by younger, shorter-term employees. Some employers have changed traditional pension plans to hybrids based on ideas from both defined benefit and defined contribution plans. One such plan is a cash balance plan, a retirement program in which benefits are based on accumulated annual company contributions, expressed as a percentage of pay, plus interest credited each year. With these plans, retirement benefits accumulate at the same annual rate until an employee retires. Offering retirement plans are a staple of the total rewards mix in any organization, critical to attracting, retaining and motivating talent.
