Retirement And Severance Benefits Covered Under ERISA
Although we are able to assist with any type of ERISA dispute, we often represent clients in matters related to pensions, retirement, and severance benefits. ERISA retirement plans typically fall under two categories: defined benefits and defined contributions. We have extensive experience with both types of plans, and we can help our clients understand what their plan classification means for them. These plans have notable differences, such as:
- Defined benefit: In defined benefits pension plans, employees are paid based on how long they paid into the pension fund and how much they earned while working. A trust administers these plans, and the employee is not required to maintain a separate benefits account.
- Defined contribution: These plans differ from defined benefit plans in that they require employees to make contributions to their own separate accounts. These plans can fluctuate based on markets and other factors that affect earning potential, so these accounts do not guarantee a specific payout at the time of retirement.
