Retirement plan options

Defined contribution

One of the most popular types of employer-sponsored retirement plans, a DC plan enables employees to contribute pre-tax income through salary deferrals, and employers to make matching contributions. This valuable benefit can help attract and retain talent, as well as lower a company’s annual tax liability.

Defined benefit

Defined benefit and cash balance (CB) plans (also known as hybrid plans) offer high contribution limits and can be an ideal solution for business owners seeking to reduce tax liabilities, accelerate retirement savings, and attract and retain employees.


A strategic supplement to a company’s 401(k) or other qualified retirement plan, a nonqualified plan can provide a competitive edge in recruiting and retaining executive leadership and ultimately managing their workforce.
