Executive Suite Plans
Executive benefit plans can be designed exclusively for key employees – providing an optimal solution to benefit limitation issues.
An executive benefit plan is a contractual commitment by an employer to a select group of employees to provide supplemental retirement benefits at a future date. Because there are no coverage, eligibility or participation requirements, an employer can decide to provide nonqualified deferred compensation benefits only to a select group of executive or highly compensated employees. This allows the employer to provide rewards and incentives based on an employee-by-employee approach, offering maximum design flexibility.
Types of Executive Plan Benefits.
Deferred compensation arrangements
Deferred compensation arrangements permit designated executives and corporate Directors to defer additional compensation to avoid current taxation. These plans are typically established in order to provide a vehicle for key employees, highly compensated employees and Directors to defer compensation until retirement.
Benefit equalization plans (BEPs)
Benefit equalization plans restore retirement plan benefits lost due to the various limits placed on IRS qualified plans. A BEP can “correct” the plan salary limit, the defined benefit plan maximum benefit limit, and various defined contribution plan limits including maximum 401(k) deferrals and ADP/ACP compliance refunds.
Supplemental executive retirement plans (SERPS)
Supplemental executive retirement plans can provide benefits beyond those provided under the qualified plan. Enhanced benefits might include:
