PENSIONS Defined contribution plans: generally available to all employees; some percentage of employees’ pay is withheld and invested in retirement options (e.g., 401-k plans); employees’ earnings are tax deferred until withdrawn for retirement; vesting occurs in 1 to 4 years in most cases; plans are transportable after vesting occurs; these plans have grown in popularity in recent years; contribution to plans go into trust for benefit of employees; generally lack regulatory safeguards. Defined benefit plans: 360 of S&P 500 offer these plans; many companies offer both defined benefit and contribution plans; contributions to plans go into trust for the benefit of the company; vesting occurs in 2 to 5 years in most cases; plans are not generally transportable after vesting occurs; plans are heavily regulated by ERISA; plans are diminishing in use because of high level of responsibility placed on companies offering such plans brought about by federal controls; more $’s needed to run a defined benefit plan.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
