Employer-sponsored Plans

Employer-sponsored retirement plans provide value to both the employer and their employees.  There are a number of retirement plan types available.  Below are some brief highlights about some of the more popular types that companies can offer.

SEP IRA: a provision that allows an employer (usually a small business or self-employed individual) to make retirement plan contributions to pension fund.

SIMPLE IRA: a simplified employee pension plan that allows both employer and employee contributions, similar to a 401(k) plan, but with lower contribution limits.

Money Purchase Plan: a defined-contribution plan to which employer contributions are fixed.

Profit-Sharing Plan: a plan that gives employees a share in the profits of the company based on the company's earnings.

Defined-Benefit Plan: an employer-sponsored retirement plan where employee benfits are sorted based on a formula using factors such as salary history and duration of employment.

401(k) Plan: a qualified plan established by employers to which eligible employees may make salary deferral contributions.
