Modernizing Plan Design

36 year-old Kelsey started her own consulting firm, and after a few years of growing her business, considered her options for aggressively expanding her retirement savings. With the help of her financial advisor, she sought advice from EGPS. How much could she put away?

Owner: Salary: Defined Benefit: 401(k) Contribution: Profit Sharing Contribution: Total Contributions:
Kelsey $265,000 $101,984 $18,000 $15,900 $135,884

Even if her salary remained flat, if she maintained the contribution she is making, her retirement account assets could be over 2.5 million by the time she is 62.


Reaping the Fruits of Their Labor

A food import business owned by a married couple has put off saving for retirement while using their capital to start their own business. Now that their business has been successful for several years, they want to start saving aggressively for retirement. They have always managed a 401k, but would like to start playing catch-up for the earlier years when they were growing their business.

Implementing a cash balance plan allows them to take advantage of their increased profits and grow their retirement plan.

Partner: Age: Compensation: 401(k): Safe Harbor: Employer: Cash Balance: Total Contribution: % of Compensation: % of Total:
Leslie 54 $28,000 $24,000 $0 $0 $0 $0 0% 0%
Ron 55 $265,000 $24,000 $0 $35,000 $184,463 $219,463 82.82% 91.11%

Total: $534,503 $51,600 $6,945 $47,438 $186,483 $240,866

The safe harbor portion of their plan means their plan automatically passes any cross-testing, so they don’t have to worry about an audit every year. The safe harbor portion means that everyone receives a 3% automatic contribution to their 401k, so the employer feels secure about the fairness in the plan. The high percent of total also means that the employer receives the majority of the plan contribution.

Percent to owners: 91%
