Money Purchase Pension Plans
A Money Purchase Pension Plan allows your company to make annual contributions
that are not tied to profits. In many ways it operates like a profit sharing plan
except you are required to contribute the same percentage of employees' salaries
each year. For added flexibility, offering both a profit sharing and money purchase
pension plan gives you the ability to boost contributions when you want.
