Employment-based pensions[ edit ] A retirement plan is an arrangement to provide people with an income during retirement when they are no longer earning a steady income from employment.
Often retirement plans require both the employer and employee to contribute money to a fund during their employment in order to receive defined benefits upon retirement. It is a tax deferred savings vehicle that allows for the tax-free accumulation of a fund for later use as a retirement income.
Funding can be provided in other ways, such as from labor unions, government agencies, or self-funded schemes. Pension plans are therefore a form of "deferred compensation".
Some countries also grant pensions to military veterans. Military pensions are overseen by the government; an example of a standing agency is the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
Ad hoc committees may also be formed to investigate specific tasks, such as the U. Commission on Veterans' Pensions commonly known as the "Bradley Commission" in — Pensions may extend past the death of the veteran himself, continuing to be paid to the widow; see, for example, the case of Esther Sumner Damonwho was the last surviving American Revolutionary War widow at her death in Typically this requires payments throughout the citizen's working life in order to qualify for benefits later on.
A basic state pension is a "contribution based" benefit, and depends on an individual's contribution history. Many countries have also put in place a " social pension ".
These are regular, tax-funded non-contributory cash transfers paid to older people. Over 80 countries have social pensions.
Disability pension Some pension plans will provide for members in the event they suffer a disability. This may take the form of early entry into a retirement plan for a disabled member below the normal retirement age. Benefits[ edit ] Retirement plans may be classified as defined benefit or defined contribution according to how the benefits are determined.
A defined contribution plan will provide a payout at retirement that is dependent upon the amount of money contributed and the performance of the investment vehicles utilized.
Hence, with a defined contribution plan the risk and responsibility lies with the employee that the funding will be sufficient through retirement, whereas with the defined benefit plan the risk and responsibility lies with the employer or plan managers. Some types of retirement plans, such as cash balance plans, combine features of both defined benefit and defined contribution plans.
They are often referred to as hybrid plans. Such plan designs have become increasingly popular in the US since the s.
Examples include Cash Balance and Pension Equity plans. Defined benefit plans[ edit ] Main article: Defined benefit pension plan A traditional defined benefit DB plan is a plan in which the benefit on retirement is determined by a set formula, rather than depending on investment returns.
Government pensions such as Social Security in the United States are a type of defined benefit pension plan. Traditionally, defined benefit plans for employers have been administered by institutions which exist specifically for that purpose, by large businesses, or, for government workers, by the government itself.
A traditional form of defined benefit plan is the final salary plan, under which the pension paid is equal to the number of years worked, multiplied by the member's salary at retirement, multiplied by a factor known as the accrual rate.Community Planning brings representatives from the public, private third and community sectors together to endeavour to deliver better public services to the area.
