Qualified Pension Plan or Trust

A retirement plan (or annuity) set up by an employer for an employee into which the employee and/or the employer may make tax deductible contributions. The plan’s investment earnings are tax deferred. The employees pay taxes only when they draw money from the plan. If the money is withdrawn before the legal age, penalties may also be incurred. IRA’s, and most corporate pension plans are deemed to be qualified.
