#1: 401k Profit Sharing Contribution Rules

Posted on 2006-03-10 17:46:05 by woessner

I'm not sure if this is the right place to be posting, but here goes...

I've been tasked to investingate setting up a 401k plan at my office.
After a few lunch meetings, I'm pretty sure what we want, but I have
one lingering question. The owner would like to make profit sharing
contributions but only after 3 years of service. Is this possible or
would it likely fail the compliance tests?

As an alternative, I told him we could set it up so that an employee
would only be vested in the profit sharing contribution after 3 years,
but he said he would prefer not to make the contributions at all.

Background: We're a small research company with about 20 employees.
About half of our employees are highly-compensated. We have only 2
non-technical employees so the boss would like to keep this simple.

Thanks in advance for any advice and suggestions.

On average, how long has the typical employee been with the company?
How much employee turnover do you have?

A 3 year vesting period, while perfectly legal, sounds a little long
for highly compensated technical employees, especially with
unemployment being fairly low right now.
