401a Plan Advantages

What is a Special Pay Plan?

A Special Pay Plan is a 401(a), 403(b), or 457(b) retirement plan designed to handle special forms of compensation in a tax-advantaged manner for governmental and school district employees. Funded upon retirement or at separation from service, these forms of compensation typically include unused sick leave and unused vacation pay.

When it comes down to it, the three major highlights are:  Preventing Unnecessary Employee Callouts, Reducing Overtime Pay, and Saving on FICA Taxes.
