SNHEC with Match and PS?

Recommended Posts

With a SHNEC provision, I know that discretionary matches above 4% are subject to ACP testing. If they also want to fund PS, how much of a margin could they have and still pass?

Profit Sharing does not affect the Safe Harbor status of the plan.

However, making a PS will remove the Top Heavy exemption due to SH.

Just providing confirmation of the BG5150 post.  Allocating profit sharing above the SHNEC does nothing to the ACP Safe Harbor Limit.  In addition, if your Plan is designed to allow a greater SHNEC than the minimum 3%, that still doesn't buy you a higher ACP Safe Harbor Limit.  You still have the limit of not more than 4% of Compensation, and no matching applied to deferrals (summation of Roth and Pre-Tax) over 6% of Compensation.
