Annual Contributions Are Required

Contributions to Cash Balance Plans must be made annually. In some circumstances, the plan can be amended to lower contributions, but strict IRS regulations may require the plan to remain in place for up to 10 years.

Steady Cash Flow is Important

Annual contributions are based on owners’ annual compensation or earned income. Because contributions are required, steady cash flow is needed to ensure the plan can be funded each year.

Contributions May Fluctuate

Cash Balance Plans are a type of Defined Benefit Plan and fund to a target retirement benefit. Contributions can vary from year to year based on investment earnings, interest rates, and other actuarial factors.
