Qualified Plans

Qualified Plans─The Bedrock of Retirement Savings

Voluntary, employer-sponsored retirement plans are the bedrock of our nation’s retirement system. More than 50 million Americans participate in more than 500,000 plans with more than $4 trillion in assets, cites the Investment Company Institute.

Most employers that provide defined-contribution plans offer a 401(k), or a 403(b) for nonprofits, as an employee benefit perquisite. Employees contribute a percentage of compensation each year and employers can either match or contribute a portion to plan. Unlike other kinds of retirement plans, a 401(k) allows the employee the ability to withdraw funds before retirement, though early withdrawals are subject to certain requirements.
