Executive Benefits

Strategically designed executive benefits offerings can differentiate your organization from your competitors, helping you attract and retain the key talent you need for success. Executive benefits strategies enable organizations to reward employees selectively, may have little impact on Profit & Loss statements, and position executives to replace benefits lost to IRS limits on qualified plans and even receive payouts before they reach retirement age.

A nonqualified deferred compensation plan (NQDC) can be an executive’s most effective, tax-deferred wealth-accumulation strategy. When a company, as the plan sponsor, integrates executive benefit plans into Total Rewards, it cost-effectively aligns the objectives of its valued executives with the organization’s stakeholders. NQDC plans, Deferred Compensation Plans (DCPs), Supplemental Executive Retirement Plans (SERPs), and other targeted strategies position executives to save tax-deferred beyond the regulatory limits of qualified plans.

Your organization may be able to manage the liability and expense of its benefit plan by utilizing tax-efficient corporate owned life insurance (COLI), bank owned life insurance (BOLI), or insurance company owned life insurance (ICOLI).
