THE BENEFITS OF A DEFINED BENEFIT PLAN DESIGN
A defined benefit plan is the only tax-qualified retirement plan that allows a participant to accrue a benefit that has a value exceeding $58,000 in 2021. However, because plan contributions are required once a benefit is accrued, it is very important to make certain that this type of plan is suitable for your client. The ideal plan sponsor:
- Is a “Baby-boomer” (Age 45 – 65)
- Has stable income and profitability
- Is older than most other employees (if any)
- Can make a multi-year commitment to increased contributions
