Description:

This paper discusses some differences between defined contribution and defined benefit retirement plans; the differences between 401 (k) and 403 (b) plans; the fiduciary requirements imposed by ERISA; and the non-discrimination rules imposed by ERISA.

From the Paper:

"Although maximum percentage of compensation limits have now been eliminated for benefits under defined benefit plans, maximum dollar limits have not. These limits typically affect only a few employees, but applying them can be an issue given typical constitutional restrictions on modifying benefit formulas for existing employees."
