Fulcrum Partners Publishes Report on Nonqualified Plan Financing

ATLANTA, Aug. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Fulcrum Partners, a OneDigital Company, has published, “Nonqualified Plan Financing: One Size Does Not Fit All”. The report looks at strategies an organization may elect to use if it chooses to fund its nonqualified deferred compensation (NQDC) plan.

Jon Kearn, Vice President of Retirement Fulcrum Partners, said, “Political, legislative, social and economic changes over the past year are driving organizations to reassess how they fund their nonqualified plans. The goals and objectives of each organization are unique. There is no ‘one-size-fits-all’ strategy that is best for every company or every executive when it comes to the design of a nonqualified deferred compensation plan. With retention of key talent and cost savings important to everyone, organizations should be exploring all strategies.”

Simply stated, nonqualified deferred compensation plans refer to a contractual agreement between an employer and selected key employees to defer currently taxable compensation until a defined specific event in the future, a strategy that could become even more desirable in the face of anticipated tax changes. This type of deferred compensation is not constrained by the same types of restrictions imposed on qualified plans. A nonqualified plan can be highly customized to meet the needs of both the organization and the key executives.

“Nonqualified Plan Financing: One Size Does Not Fit All” can be read or downloaded at Deferred Compensation News.
