You’re in the driver’s seat

Individual entitlements

The Cash Balance plan allows you to decide the amount and the return that you want to award to your staff members. The return may be a fixed percentage, or the return of a financial instrument or index such as OLO linear bonds. Every month a savings amount will be deposited on a notional account in the name of the member, the virtual piggybank of your staff member. This amount will increase in step with the return that you award.


Collective financing

In contrast the financing of these individual entitlements is of a collective nature. Periodically you will remit allocations to a collective financing fund. Depending on your appetite for risk, you then choose how to invest these allocations/remittances:

Branch 21, with a guaranteed return.
Branch 23, without a guaranteed return, in a mix of shares, bonds, cash and real
estate. 

So you decide the investment strategy, taking into account the return that you guarantee your staff members, the risk profile of the funds chosen and any safety margin or buffer that you want to build up.

With a well thought-out investment strategy, it is perfectly possible that the reserves accrued by your financing fund will be higher than what you promised your staff members.

This investment buffer gives you two choices:
You keep the surplus and may use it later whenever you choose. In the meantime, you pay a minimum allocation and the surplus goes on increasing according to the return of your financing fund.
You stop making contributions until the surplus has disappeared. You will then enjoy a 'contribution holiday'.

Give your staff members freedom


Integration in a Cafeteria Plan

It is simple to integrate the cash balance in a Cafeteria Plan.

It's up to you to decide:
the budget allocated to the group insurance
the return you wish to guarantee
the types of risk coverage you want to offer (financed within or outside the budget)
the various options for your staff members in terms of the risk coverage.

The member can subsequently make choices: he/she can decide, within the limits set by you, about the level of risk coverage such as death cover or a disability pension.


Cash advances

Another option is to allow your staff members to take out a cash advance on their supplementary pension benefits. They can apply a portion of their accrued pension reserves towards buying or remodeling real estate or to pay off a mortgage loan, long before they reach retirement age.
