457(b) Plans for 401(k) Practitioners
: 11/1/2011 Time
: 2:00 p.m. (ET) Duration
: 100 minutes
NOTE: This program, originally scheduled for October 12, 2011, has been moved to November 1, 2011. Please ensure you are able to attend on the new date before registering.
For governmental organizations, 457(b) plans can provide a valuable system for employee or employer retirement contributions, totally independent of qualified plans or 403(b) plans. In fact, a 457(b), combined with a 403(b), can allow a government employee to make elective deferrals of $33,000 this year (or more if the employee is catch-up eligible). 457(b) plans are also available for top executives of tax-exempt organizations.
While there are many similarities to 401(k) plans, there are also many important differences. This Web seminar gives the 401(k) practitioner all he or she needs to know to assist in designing and operating 457(b) plans. We will cover 457(b) plans from “soup to nuts,” emphasizing the areas where a 457(b) differs from the typical 401(k) plan.
This is the only 457(b) plans program to be presented until Fall 2012 so plan to attend.
There are no prerequisites or other advanced preparation for this program. The speaker will not assume any experience with 457(b) plans, but will assume that attendees understand the basics of operating 401(k) plans.
