Retirement Fund

Secure the future of your key employees with our Retirement Fund.

Overview

Retirement Fund is an employee retirement plan set up by a company to fund the retirement/separation benefit payments of its qualified employees at a future date. It can be set up using either or a combination of the following plans:

  • Fixed Benefit Plan – benefits received by the employee are defined based on the length of stay with the company & his current salary.
  • Contributory Plan – benefits received by the employee consist of contributions made by both the employer & the employee plus earnings earned from these contributions to the fund.
