Cash Balance Plan

Cash balance plans are a great solution for highly profitable small businesses who are seeking to maximize tax deductions and making large contributions to an owner’s retirement plan while giving employees a valuable retirement benefit.

A cash balance plan is a defined benefit plan that is very similar to a traditional pension but with a few features that more closely resemble a 401(k) defined contribution plan.  Learn more in our cash balance plan FAQ.

Nyhart consults to clients, accountants and financial advisors to identify the tax and financial benefits of a cash balance defined benefit plan. We have a dedicated team of actuaries and plan administrators with years of experience implementing hundreds of cash balance plans for doctors, dentists, accountants and other high-income business owners.
