A 401(k) Plan is a defined contribution retirement plan that allows employees the choice to set aside money for retirement on a traditional tax-deferred or after-tax (Roth) basis. Employers may choose to contribute money to the 401(k) and offer a company match and/or profit sharing contribution to employees.
Profit Sharing Plans allow employers to contribute flexible amounts to all eligible employees to enhance employee retirement savings. Employers can determine the amount to be contributed after company year end. This option affords the plan sponsor considerable flexibility in deciding on the contribution amount and timing.
Employee Stock Ownership
An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a defined contribution plan that allows employees to become stockholders in the company through employer contributions of employer stock. There are tax benefits for both the employer and employee.
Defined Benefit (DB)
An Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) is a defined contribution plan that among other benefits allows employees to become stockholders in the company through employer contributions of company stock. These plans can also be used to acquire company stock in a ax favored manner.
One possible combination design is a pairing of a 401(k) Plan and a Cash Balance Defined Benefit Plan. BPC’s team of credentialed consultants coordinate with the Plan Sponsor and a leading actuarial firm that specializes in Cash Balance plans for initial plan design. BPC coordinates the operation and administration of both plans.
A 403(b) is a defined contribution retirement plan that may be offered to employees of government and tax-exempt groups such as schools, hospitals and churches, to set aside money for retirement on a traditional tax-deferred or after-tax (Roth) basis. Employers may choose to make discretionary or matching contributions.
Money Purchase Pension
A Money Purchase Pension allows employers to make contributions based on a percentage of annual earnings. At retirement, the vested balance in participants’ accounts can be used to purchase a lifetime annuity.
Cross Tested Profit Sharing
A Cross Tested Profit-Sharing Plan can be designed to favor older and more highly compensated employees. This particular profit sharing plan design can favor certain classes of participants within the discrimination guidelines of ERISA. Typically, senior management and owners can receive more than a strict pro-rata allocation of Employer contributions.

Federal ERISA Law requires plan sponsors to provide timely notices and disclosures regarding those plans to participants and other stakeholders.
