Looking for a tax-deductible method of providing employees with a retirement plan that matches some or all of their salary? A Defined Contribution Plan Account may be an appropriate investment vehicle for you.
Janus Henderson offers two types of defined contribution plans: Money Purchase Pension Plans and Profit Sharing Plans. These plans may have more plan elections, such as a vesting schedule and other eligibility requirements elected by the employer. If the business' retirement plan will only cover a few individuals, i.e., sole proprietor including their spouse and other family members, then a Simplified Employee Pension (SEP IRA), may be more suitable and easier to administer.
Janus Henderson is a prototype plan document provider, therefore it may not be necessary for an employer to create their own plan. However, the Janus Henderson plan documents only offer generic plan elections/provisions and thus a more complex plan may require the employer to create their own individually designed plan.
These types of plans may require additional advice from an attorney or a tax professional to ensure the plan is properly managed.
Money Purchase Pension Plan (MPPP)
The MPPP allows employers to contribute a predetermined contribution amount to a retirement savings account for the benefit of employees.
Profit Sharing Plan (PSP)
The amount contributed to a PSP may be at the employer’s discretion each year, thus an employer is not locked into a predetermined contribution amount as it would be for an MPPP. Generally, PSP contribution rates must be the same for all eligible plan participants.
Is a Defined Contribution Plan right for you?
A defined contribution plan is an employer-sponsored retirement plan that allows the employer to contribute for the benefit of their eligible employees, including themselves. Employees may not contribute to this type of plan.
