401(a) Retirement Plan overview

What is a 401(a) Plan?

401(a) plans are employer-sponsored defined contribution retirement plans available to governmental, for-profit and not-for-profit employers. While employers are not obligated to make contributions each year, there must be recurring and substantial contributions. Like other defined contribution plans, the benefit each employee receives depends on how much is in their individual 401(a) account at retirement. 401(a) plans generally do not allow employee salary deferral contributions.
