401(a)26 with Floor Offset Plan

Recommended Posts

I am looking at a proposal for a cash balance plan that is offset by employer contributions to a 401(k) plan. It looks like there are 20 eligible employees but only the two shareholders have net contribution credits of more than $280K in the cash balance plan. They are both in their late 50s and the plan has a NRA of 65.

I seem to recall that for purposes of 401(a)26, only the benefits after offset can be considered if they are meaningful (.5% of pay or greater) when a cash balance plan is part of a floor offset arrangement. Whereas benefits before offset are allowed when a traditional defined benefit plan is part of a floor offset arrangement (provided the DC plan has uniform allocations, QJSA etc.) and benefits before offset are meaningful.

Anyone agree / disagree?
