Administration and Innovation

Raymond, Reeves & Stout, LLP will carefully and thoughtfully design, implement and administer all types of qualified and non-qualified retirement plans as follows:

  • Profit Sharing. The most flexible form of tax qualified employer funded retirement plan, which allows a variable contribution from year to year of up to 25% of participant compensation.
  • Age-weighted Allocation. This plan type combines features of both defined benefit and profit sharing plans, providing larger contributions to those closest to retirement, while maintaining year to year contribution flexibility.
  • Cross-tested Allocation. The latest innovation in fixed or discretionary formulas which can provide a different level of contribution to various classes of participants. If appropriate to your workforce, it optimizes benefits to key personnel.
  • SEP's and SIMPLE Plans. Hybrids of profit sharing and IRA or 401(k) plans with unique participation and limited contribution features.
  • 403(b) Plans. Tax deferred retirement programs available to Section 501(c)(3) exempt organizations and public schools.
  • 401(k) Plans. Extremely popular form of profit sharing plan, which allows pre-tax employee contributions with or without an employer discretionary match.
  • Safe Harbor 401(k) Plan. A special type of 401(k) plan which allows key personnel to make maximum allowable salary deferrals without 401(k) discrimination testing.
  • Defined Benefit and 412(e)(3) Defined Benefit. An annual retirement benefit is funded by reference to such actuarial variables as compensation, age, interest rates and mortality tables. Contributions are mandatory at the level that meets the actuarial funding requirement.
  • Cash Balance. A defined benefit plan that provides mandatory contributions at different levels to various classes of participants. Depending on employee demographics, it optimizes benefits to key personnel at much higher deduction limits than in a Cross-tested Allocation plan.
  • Target Benefit. Provides a mandatory level contribution based on a pre-defined retirement income. The retirement income, however, is not guaranteed, in contrast to a defined benefit plan.
  • ESOP's. Allows for a contribution or purchase of employer stock. This plan can provide a ready source of capital within the business itself for expansion or redemption.
