defined benefit plan
A Defined Benefit Plan is an employer sponsored retirement plan that defines the benefits that participants will receive at retirement age, rather than the annual contributions that the employer will make as in a defined contribution plan. Defined Benefit plans are typically best for smaller employers where business owners are closer to normal retirement age and have the desire to maximize funding for retirement.

WHAT IS A defined benefit PLAN?
WHAT IT MEANS
A defined benefit plan is an employer sponsored plan where the contribution levels can be significantly higher than a defined contribution plan. This plan tends to favor older employees who are highly compensated. The maximum contribution in a Defined Benefit is actuarially determined by the amount needed to fund a defined benefit at a normal retirement age.
Defined Benefit plans are best fitted for business owners and highly compensated employees who are more focused on retirement in their near future and business owners who have increased earnings and stable cash flow. Additionally, this can bring a competitive advantage for business owners who want to provide different levels of benefits to different types of employees.
The funding amount is based on a plan design analysis and company census. Defined Benefit plans are annually funded by employer. The age and income of the participants are important to calculate benefits.
