The term "Qualified Plan"

It seems that opinions vary as to what constitutes a "Qualified"

Plan, so I will throw in my 2 cents.

I have always defined a "qualified" plan as one subject to the limitations and restrictions of ERISA.

Any form of deferred compensation arrangement that is not subject to the restrictions and limitations imposed by ERISA would therefore be considered a "non-qualified" plan.

I hope this helps.

Hmm, but that would exclude all governmental plans, even those that are qualified within the meaning of Internal Revenue Code section 401(a). ..
