Compensation and Executive Benefit Strategies

Our specialized expertise in nonqualified deferred compensation plans helps our clients attract, retain and reward top executive talent, even in the most competitive environments.

Take Advantage of a Nonqualified Deferred Compensation Plan

A nonqualified deferred compensation plan is designed to provide key employees the opportunity to accumulate savings on a tax-favored basis. Although 401(k) and other qualified savings plans represent valuable tools for accumulating pre-tax savings, they may not be sufficient for employees to reach their retirement savings goal. A nonqualified deferred compensation plan helps magnify pre-tax savings benefits of a qualified plan by removing IRS restrictions not only on total contributions, but also on how those savings can be used. These plans can potentially help your employees accumulate higher potential returns, reduce current income taxes, and create an income stream.
