With modern administration measures, pension plans can be an executive's dream come true.
In this episode, Aaron and Trishul discuss the other type of retirement plans, defined benefit plans AKA pensions. They start with the history of pensions and the emergence of ERISA. By calculating the benefit based on age and income, employers can fund significantly more on a pre-tax basis than defined contribution plans such as 401k's. They discuss the cons during the accumulation phase and the pros during the distribution phase. By understanding the math, both employees and employers can make better decisions related to pensions.
