Adding a Cash Balance plan to a 401(k) Profit-sharing plan currently in place can allow owners to invest significantly higher contribution limits.
This illustration is common for what we see for a small business. In this scenario the business has two owners (a husband-and-wife couple) along with four additional employees.
The owner wanted to make the maximum allowable Cash Balance contribution for her age (61) which results in a total contribution, including the 401(k) profit sharing plan, of $344,500. The Cash balance contribution largely depends on profitability and only a 7.5% of pay contribution for all other employees is required.
This allows this married couple to save nearly $200,000 in taxes.
