John Smith, the owner of Smith’s European Delicacies has expressed an interest in establishing a qualified plan for his employees. His goals are to (1) provide a meaningful benefit for his employees, (2) help out a few long-service employees who have been with him for over 15 years, (3) and encourage employment loyalty to his company. Would you recommend a DB plan or a DC plan to Mr. Hopkins and why? Is there a scenario where an employer might choose to combine a DB plan and a DC plan? 1 Why is that?

A DB plan can simply be altered into a CB plan if the company so chooses. Why would a company choose to establish a CB plan? Perhaps they like the benefits of a DB plan, but they want their employees to have more transparency in the process (like a DC plan). Defined Benefit Plan Types 35 The disadvantages of offering a CB plan follow the same logic as a DB plan. Unlike a straight DC plan, the company will need to pay for Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation (PBGC) coverage. They will also have higher administrative costs than a DC plan while also incurring a required contribution level.

Answer these potential client questions: a. Can a DB plan pay the owner of a small business $210,000 (2014 indexed) per year, beginning at age 60? b. Is it true that if an individual works for a company and participates in two separate 401(k) plans (through different subsidiaries) he or she can contribute $17,500 (2014 indexed) into each plan for a total contribution of $35,000? John Smith, the owner of Smith’s European Delicacies has expressed an interest in establishing a qualified plan for his employees.
