Traditional 401(k)

Traditional 401(k) plans have become one of the most popular employee benefits offered today. Corporations, Sub-Chapter S, Self-employed, Sole Proprietorships, Partnerships and Non-Profits may establish plans.

401(k) plans can be designed and tailored to fit individual company needs – eligibility, vesting, contribution flexibility, participant loans and various distribution options. Many companies offer these plans as a way to attract and retain employees.

401(k) plans allow employees to make pre-tax salary deferral to help save for their own retirement and shelter some of their income from current income taxes. Employers can elect to make tax-deductible contributions on behalf of employees in the form of a matching and/or discretionary profit sharing contribution. The limit on 401(k) pre-tax deferrals is $16,500 for 2011. In addition, if the participant is over age 50, or will attain age 50 during 2011, a catch-up contribution of $5,500 may also be made.

401(k) plans are subject to a variety of nondiscrimination testing requirements, as required under the IRS, including minimum coverage, ADP/ACP, top heavy and general nondiscrimination.

Plans must be established by fiscal year-end (December 31 for calendar year plan). Deferrals are not permitted until the plan is established.
