A deferred-compensation plan is an employer-sponsored benefit for chosen employees in which participating employees defer a portion of their annual income into the plan before taxes and the employer promises to distribute that money, plus any earnings and additional employer contributions, at a future time. These plans can help employees save beyond 401(k) plan limitations to help meet their overall savings and retirement goals. Employees can also use a deferred-compensation plan as a tool to help manage the impact of taxes when the benefits are paid. This webinar will help advisors offer guidance to their clients that will maximize the benefits derived from deferred-compensation plans. Various plan designs will be explored, market trends will be identified, and the features of various funding vehicles will be discussed.
