Your Need for a Nonqualified Executive Benefits Plan


Bridging the Gap …

A nonqualified deferred compensation plan, NQDC, can serve an important function in helping to fill the significant gap between the combined amount of your social security retirement benefits plus your qualified retirement benefits and the amount of retirement savings you will need in order to replace your current income.

Qualified retirement plans, IRAs, and 403(b) plans have limits on contribution amounts. In contrast, NQDC has inherent flexibility and affords greater opportunities, including 401(k) “restoration” that can help you bridge the replacement income gap.

Forty percent of highly-compensated executives admit they are concerned about the gap between their current income and their projected retirement income.”

The More You Currently Earn the Greater the Gap Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan

  • Restores contributions limited by IRS restrictions on qualified retirement plans.
  • Allows you to have an individualized investment strategy.
  • Is not subject to contribution/ participation limits.
  • Allows organizations to make discretionary contributions to enhance employee retention, including incentive-based contributions.
  • Has simplified government disclosure and reporting rules or no disclosure reporting at all.
