What are pension plans?
Pension plans are a type of retirement plan in which the employee and employer make contributions. These contributions are invested and to be received upon retirement. In most all cases pension plans are tax exempt. The two types of pension plans are defined benefit plans and defined contribution plans. A defined benefit plan guarantees an amount upon retirement no matter how the investment performed. A defined contribution plan is not a guaranteed amount and heavily depends on the investment performance.
