What can be challenging about retirement plans? 

If you do not know much about retirement plans, you might wish you could just get an out-of-the-box option. However, retirement plans are crucial to many businesses and you want to ensure they fit your needs (the employer) as well as the needs of your employees. Especially when you are not in the business of retirement planning, you may not have the mindset to consider all of the best options. That is where we come in. We understand the ins and outs of retirement planning and can match you to the appropriate record keeper or advisor who will share in the administrative tasks while you keep running your business. 

Is a 401(k) the same as a pension plan?

When you are trying to make decisions about plans for corporate retirement, you may be wondering what the difference is between a 401(k) and a pension plan. 

  • 401(k). A 401(k) is extremely popular and it is also known as a “Defined-Contribution plan.” This means that both the employer and the employee can contribute funds into the retirement plan. Many employees like this option because the employer will typically match (up to a certain percent) the funds placed into the plan. 
  • Pension Plans. A pension plan, on the other hand, is much different. Known as a “Defined-Benefit plan,” an employer will make financial contributions that go to a specific fund for the benefit of the employee. These funds are invested and when the investment earns money it can be made available to the employee when they retire.
