401(k) Plan combined with Defined Benefit Plan

Typically thought of as a big-company retirement plan, a 401(k) Plan - a type of Profit Sharing Plan - is also available to small-business owners.  Two examples of when to consider combining a Defined Benefit Plan with a 401(k) Plan:

  1. No Eligible Employees: If an owner is interested in making larger tax-deductible contributions than are available using a Defined Benefit Plan alone, then adding on a 401(k) Plan allows for additional owner contributions.  Potential additional 401(k) Plan contribution in 2018: $41,000
  2. With Eligible Employees:  If an owner has employees, resulting in a stand-alone Defined Benefit Plan being too expensive for providing benefits to staff, then adding a 401(k) Plan (or a Profit Sharing Plan) allows for maximum benefits to the owner and affordable contributions to staff.
