One of the most popular and common types of company-sponsored retirement plans available today, a traditional 401(k) plan allows participants to reduce their current taxable income levels by deferring pre-tax income into the plan. Those contributions enjoy tax-deferred savings until withdrawn at retirement.
Cash Balance Plans
There are two general types of pension plans — defined benefit plans and defined contribution plans. A cash balance pension plan is a pension plan under which an employer credits a participant's account with a set percentage of his or her yearly compensation plus interest charges.
Defined Benefit Plans
A Defined Benefit plan is a retirement plan that promises a specific monthly benefit at retirement. This benefit may be stated as an exact dollar amount, such as $100 per month at retirement, or calculated through a plan formula that considers such factors as salary history and years of service.
403(b) and 457(b) Plans
Falling under the auspice of ERISA and Non- ERISA plans, a 403(b) plan offers a means for employees of non-profit organizations - sometimes referred to as 501(c)3 organizations - to defer pretax income into a tax-deferred retirement savings account.
Once a company has decided to terminate its employee retirement plan, it is necessary to complete the administration of the plan and ensure terminations are completed in compliance with ERISA and IRS requirements as quickly as possible.
Even the IRS and DOL recognize that mistakes can happen. If a plan sponsor finds that their plan is not in compliance, there are several programs available that the Ryding Company can assist you with, to help correct problems and bring the plan back into compliance.
IRS & DOL Audits
Every year the Department of Labor (DOL) and the Internal Revenue Service’s (IRS) Employee Plans Compliance Program (EP) perform thousands of audits of employee benefit retirement plans.

3(16) Fiduciary Services
ERISA Section 3(16) states the definition of “Plan Administrator” as responsible for the daily operation of the plan. A Plan Administrator under ERISA 3(16) is identified in the Plan Document and if the Plan Document is not specific, the Plan Sponsor is considered to be the 3(16) fiduciary.
