Pension Plans Can Save You Thousands of Dollars
In a 2015 article in the Wall Street Journal, it was noted that GOP candidate Jeb Bush saved an average of $350,000 per year via the use of a pension plan. This translates to $1,750,000 over the course of five years by diverting money that would otherwise be spent on income taxes. According to reports, Bushs plan was built for two unnamed individuals, likely Jeb and his son. While this strategy is legal, it is relatively under utilized by many professional accountants. Similar to the defined benefit plans from the era before the 401(k), a pension plan allows you and your employer to contribute much more than a traditional pension plan, which enforces the following limits on the amount of money you can contribute per year to your 401(k):
- Under age 50 a maximum of $18,000 per year
- Over age 50 a maximum of $59,000 per year
However, with this unique pension plan, an individual can contribute a maximum of excess or over $250,000 per year toward an individuals entire retirement fund. You can imagine the savings that would occur over 15, 10, or even 5 years.
A number of my clients are successfully using this same strategy.
