What are 401(k) and 403(b) Retirement Plans?

Both 401(k) and 403(b) plans are retirement plan options sponsored by employers. The name comes from the tax code sections where the information can be found. Both options come with Traditional and Roth options and are qualified tax-advantaged retirement plans. So what are the differences?
 

401(k) 

401(k) plans are offered by private for profit companies. Employees are able to make tax deferred contributions from their pay checks and can choose if the contribution are made post or pre-tax. Along with the availability of company match contributions, these types of accounts also allow for profit-sharing contributions. 
 

403(b)

403(b) plans are offered by nonprofit organizations and government employers like public school and some ministries. These types of plans have the ability to invest in annuities and mutual funds. Many of the features found in a 403(b) plan are the same as a 401(k), like tax deferred contributions and company match, but it may depend on the employer. 

What are Profit Sharing Plans?

 
Profit Sharing Plans are a benefit offered by an employer. This type of plan shares the companies profits with its employees. These types of plans often come with a vesting schedule. Vesting schedules differ from plan to plan but it can take up to six (6) years to become fully vested. The amount added to the plans of each employee can also vary on how long employee has been at the company.
 

What does fully vested mean?

Fully vested means that an employee has stayed at a company long enough to have earned the right to keep 100% of the profit sharing or employer matching contribution. An employee is always 100% vested in their own contributions. Example: If in order to become fully vested an employee must stay for three (3) years and the employee left after two (2). Then the employee would only be able to take 66% of the employer match or profit sharing and the other 33% stays. 

What are Pension Plans?

Pension Plans are funds maintained by an employer on behalf of its employees. The funds gathered are usually invested in low risk investments. Contributions are tax differed like many other retirement plans. Often both the employer and employee contribute to these types of plans. Pension plans are then managed by an investment professional. At retirement, the amount an employee gets is determined by calculations of the amount contributed and number of years spent at the company.
