Program Summary

During our March program, we will review how non-qualified plans can be effectively used to address a variety of compensation and benefit challenges, including:

  • Incentivizing and rewarding ALL employees (or a broad, strategic, group of employees)
  • Retaining KEY employees being wooed by other companies
  • Recruiting highly skilled employees in tight labor markets
  • Nullifying competitive compensation disadvantages
    • Making-up for unvested stock options
    • Equalizing rich foreign or domestic pensions
  • Solving qualified plan testing issues without going safe harbor
  • Avoid losing corporate compensation tax deductions due to 162(m)
