Voluntary after-tax employee contributions have been a commonly found, but infrequently used feature in pre-approved plan documents. Guidance from the IRS and articles in financial publications created a firestorm of interest in “employee” contributions a few years ago, but they are still poorly understood. For decades, these have been the forgotten step-child of the retirement plan world. Now interest is heating up.
In this special 100 minute web seminar, we will provide an in depth look at after-tax employee contributions and how they are used. We will closely examine current strategies and discuss whether they work and whether they make sense. There will be lots of examples and ample opportunity for questions.
