Profit Sharing Plans
 
Profit sharing plans, employee and deferred, are trust arrangements which allow employers (your business members) to share profits with their most valuable resource – their employees.
 
Designed to help your business member:
  • Expand their incentives program to reward and retain highly valued employees.
  • Provide peace of mind for their employees knowing that the funds held within the plan are in the hands of a professional trustee.
The two plans are distinguished as follows:
  • Employee Profit Sharing - Employees are required to pay tax each year on the contributions made and plan income earned.
  • Deferred Profit Sharing – Employees enjoy deferred, tax-sheltered contributions and plan income.
