A 412(e)(3) plan enjoys certain advantages over the traditional defined benefit plan and is worth exploring if you are the owner of a small business.
What Requirements Must Be Met To Qualify As A 412(e)(3) Insurance Contract Plan?
The major requirements under section 412(e)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code are:
- The plan must be funded exclusively with annuity products, or a combination of life insurance and annuity products, issued by an insurance company.
- The benefits provided each individual must be equal to the values provided in the contracts and guaranteed by the insurance carrier.
- Life insurance dividends and excess annuity interest must be used to reduce the following year’s plan contribution.
- No policy loans are allowed under the contracts.
