DEFINED BENEFIT PENSION PLANS ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL
Cash balance plans and other defined benefit (DB) plans offer successful business owners opportunities to save in taxes and create retirement income streams for plan participants. However, cash balance plans have limitations and risks that Direct Recognition Variable Investment Plans (DR-VIP) don’t have. There is a way to avoid being trapped by cash balance plan limitations; by terminating a cash balance plan and starting up a DR-VIP, participants can gain access to their investments before retirement age and capture the opportunity to accumulate even more. Cherry Bekaert Benefits Consulting’s business-smart solution for eliminating plan sponsor liabilities, putting plan assets under participant control and continuing tax deductible contributions.
