ARE YOU MAXING OUT YOUR 401(K) PLAN CONTRIBUTIONS, BUT NEED….
Additional retirement savings
Larger deductions to reduce taxable income
Accomplishing these goals by adopting a Cash Balance Plan is a growing trend among professional groups, including lawyers, doctors, dentists, engineers, architects and accountants.
Combining a Cash Balance Plan with a 401(k) profit sharing plan can provide annual pre-tax contributions of $100,000 to $250,000.
WHAT IS A CASH BALANCE PLAN?
Like a 401(k) profit sharing plan, a Cash Balance Plan is an IRS qualified retirement plan providing tax deferral and creditor protection. A Cash Balance Plan document defines annual contributions and earnings to be credited to each participant. Contributions do not have to be equal, therefore business partners/owners can receive between 85 to 95 percent of contributions. Cash Balance Plan investments are pooled and not self-directed. Participants receive statements with their cash balance plan account which can be rolled over as a lump sum into an individual retirement account (IRA) or other employer sponsored plan upon separation from service.
IS A CASH BALANCE PLAN RIGHT FOR YOUR BUSINESS?
There’s a good chance if…
Partners/owners already contribute the maximum of $55,000 or $61,000 annually to a 401(k) profit sharing plan
Partners/owners already contribute 3 to 4 percent annually to employees in 401(k) profit sharing plan
Business income and cash flow is consistent
